Alex Gordon Newsbeat

As other 2015 Royals heroes have exited, Alex Gordon set to finish career in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY – Had Jeurys Familia not thrown a quick pitch to Salvador Perez in the ninth inning of Game 1 of the 2015 World Series, perhaps that series plays out differently.

The Mets may have been the ones being honored down the Canyon of Heroes. The Royals could have been defeated in the World Series in back-to-back years.

And Alex Gordon may not have delivered one of the most clutch hits in Royals history.

Despite all the film that Gordon and the Royals had pored over leading into that game, they really were not all that aware of the quick pitch in Familia’s arsenal.

Thoughts on what it means when you stay on and the rest of the team doesn’t.
