Kansas City Royals fans are hungry for a winning baseball team

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Royals are number one in the American League Central division for the first time in more than a decade this late in the season.

Fans are hungry for a winning baseball team in Kansas City.

The Royals said it only takes about two wins in a row for the team to see more fans in the stands.

When there are fewer tickets to go around, under the team's new dynamic pricing structure, the prices will go up almost immediately.

Ticket prices have started to inch up since the right game winning streak.

The Royals said attendance is better than it's been in a long time averaging about 30,000 through last weekend.

And the players, like pitcher Danny Duffy, said a crowded house makes all the difference in continuing the winning streak.

The last time the Royals made it to the playoffs was 29 years ago in 1985.

Duffy, 25, wasn't even born yet.

"In baseball, in general, we were just babies or not even born yet the last time it happened and it's time. The time is now and fans are hungry for that win,” Duffy said.
