For excited Kansas City, postseason growing pains

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas City Royals fans, their team, and the city itself are getting a crash course on what playoff baseball is all about.

The wild card game on Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics marks the return of postseason baseball to Kansas City for the first time since 1985, when the Royals won the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Many young Kansas City residents have no memories of that magical year, or the I-70 series. They rely on YouTube searches or their parents' nostalgic retellings of umpire Don Denkinger's blown call in Game 6 that sent the Royals toward their title.
