Burlington Royals are playoff bound
Congratulations to the Burlington Royals, Kansas City’s affiliate in the Appalachian League! The B-Royals won at Danville last night to overtake the Braves in the standings. Burlington, which joined the Kansas City organization in 2007, will go to the playoffs for the first time since 1993 when they were affiliated with the Indians.
Burlington finishes the regular season on Tuesday. They host the Johnson City Cardinals on Wednesday night in a first-round playoff. Game two, and if necessary, game three will be held at Johnson City.
