The Royals could look like a very different team next year, and fans have recognized that.
With star players like Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas set to hit free agency, the Royals may not be able to afford to bring them back. This weekend, they have shown their love and respect by giving the players standing ovations.
This afternoon, Hosmer received a standing O when he stepped to the plate in the first inning, and after tipping his helmet to the crowd, he gave the fans a moment to remember.

What. A. Moment.
A dramatic send off to say the least. If this is his last game in Kansas City, this is something he will remember forever.
Everyone here standing up for Eric Hosmer's entire at bat. Opposite field home run. What the hell.— Sam Mellinger (@mellinger) October 1, 2017
