Just how bad are the KC Royals?

Postby knapplc » Tue May 09, 2006 8:45 am

Brockton - The short-season Brockton Rox of the independent CanAm League think they can win more games this season than the full-season Kansas City Royals of Major League baseball's American League and are willing to put their money where their mouth's are.

Brockton President Jim Lucas declared today that he thinks that the Brockton Rox will win more games in their 92-game season than the Kansas City Royals will win in their 162-game season. "This is a sign of confidence in our GM Andy Crossley's ability to put together a great ballclub and our ability to win 55-60 games this season." Last year, the Rox won 50 games while the Royals won 56.

The Rox don't want to call this "a bet" per se because they understand organized baseball's rules against gambling, but more of a challenge. "However to make this challenge this interesting, " Lucas continued, "the Rox will put up $500 and because we are spotting the Royals 70 games, we expect them to put up $5,000." If the Rox lose, they will contribute their money to the YMCA of Greater Kansas City to assist in the creation of the Kansas City YMCA Challenger Division Baseball Park, a field designed for children with mental and physical disabilities. The Challenger Field will be custom-designed using a synthetic turf to accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices in order to remove the barriers that normally keep special-needs children off the baseball field. If the Royals lose, they would make their contribution to the Brockton Challenger Division of Little League Baseball

The only ground rule that Lucas insists upon, "Because the Rox regular season ends September 4th, the Royals can't purchase any Brockton player when their roster expands in September to assist them in trying to catch the Rox."

The Rox are awaiting a response from the Kansas City Royals on this challenge.

The Brockton Rox begin their season Thursday, May 25 versus the New Haven Cutters.

For more information about the Royal Challenge, contact Bill Chuck of the Rox front office at (617) 566-2784 or visit the team's website at http://www.brocktonrox.com for more information about the Brockton Rox.


I love Independent League baseball. They play a much more pure form of the game IMO. We have a team here in Lincoln and we’ve had season tickets for the past few years. No steroids, no controversy, just good pure baseball. ;-D

I took the Rox, but it will be pretty sad for the Royals if they can't do it.
