A ROYALS REUNION: MONROE CITY'S CURT MAYES
As hard as it is to come by a job in any capacity in Professional Sports, there are five, count em, five Tri State products working in various capacities with the Kansas City Royals Organziation these days.
None of whom were aware of their shared local roots until about a month ago, when I ventured to Kauffman Stadium to track them all down.
Over the next two nights, we will introduce you to our own Tri State Royals, beginning now with one of Northeast Missouri's finest; carving out his own career path, with apologies to George Thoma, as KC's new Sultan of Sod.
