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.

Royals’ Alex Gordon wanted to honor a kid battling cancer. Then he hit a home run

As he touched the plate to conclude his home-run trot, Royals outfielder Alex Gordon tapped his right elbow. Hours earlier, he had scripted seven letters onto a yellow band and wrapped it around his arm.

CHARLIE.

Charlie is a teenager battling pediatric cancer. He had been in remission, but needed a brain operation on Friday, according to a team official. He is part of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which supports childhood cancer research.

On a night in which he wanted to remember Charlie as he played, Gordon offered the kid something he likely will not forget.
