Ned Yost media session: April 5, 2014
The Kansas City Royals have played in two openers this year (March 31 at Detroit and yesterday vs. Chicago). Manager Ned Yost is happy to have the pageantry of openers behind him.
“It just takes you out of your routine,” Yost said speaking to the media before Saturday afternoon’s game. “I think the players, the coaches, everybody are creatures of habit and we pretty much stick to our routine every day during the season and when you have things that kind of take you out of your routine, it’s different. Now we just go play baseball every single day.”
Yost was also appreciative of the fans who showed up on Friday, braving temperatures in the mid-40s and wind gusts that reached close to 30 miles per hour.
“It was great that we got the win yesterday in front of an enthusiastic crowd that really had to bear with the elements.”
