The Royals have an exciting young core of players – we’re looking forward to 2013!!  Today, FOX Sports Kansas City sent out this press release regarding TV viewership:

Viewership for Kansas City Royals cable telecasts reached an all-time high in 2012. The 140 regular season games televised on FOX Sports Kansas City averaged a 3.8 household rating in the Kansas City DMA, according to The Nielsen Co., up 13 percent from 2011.

I have all 162 games under my belt this season……. and 160 from last season. I’m what you might call….. a Royals fanatic. I’m not going to miss a game if I can help it.
