New season of The Amazing Race to have Royal connection

Baseball and travel go hand in hand.  We’ve featured travel and geography on this blog through fan photos in our Around the World posts.  We interviewed an opposing coach who appeared on The Amazing Race with his daughter.  And we asked Royals which teammate would make the best contestant on The Amazing Race.  When we posed that question to second baseman Chris Getz in March, 2012, little did we know that his wife, Nicky, would be a contestant on the show.  Nicky will share the television experience with Kim DeJesus, wife of former Royal and current Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David DeJesus.  Congrats to Nicky and Kim, who are featured in a “Meet the Teams” video on CBS.com!  The new season premieres Sunday, September 29 on CBS.

Ned Yost media session: May 26

Thata baby!

David DeJesus and wife Kim welcomed a 7 lb. 10 oz. baby boy into the world yesterday. Yost expects DeJesus to be at the game today, but isn’t putting any pressure on the outfielder to return until the mother and baby are taken care of adequately. Yost understands how special this occasion is and said DeJesus is very excited. Yost even received a picture of the beautiful newborn laying on his father’s chest last night. 

Head over heels

Yuniesky Betancourt suffered a slight concussion in last night’s game after colliding with Rangers catcher Matt Treanor in the fifth inning. Yost said that the dizziness is gone and Betancourt feels better today, but it will still be a day or two before he returns to action. Yost added that he experienced no hesitation replacing Betancourt at shortstop with Mike Aviles.

Movin’ on up

Luke Hochevar will take the mound this afternoon, and Yost expects nothing less than a great pitching performance from the right-hander. The manager praised Hochevar for the way he pitched through tough situations instead of powering through them in his last outing. Yost hopes that the Royals pitching staff can raise their stats to the middle of the pack rather than dwell at the bottom.
