The Silence, the Series, and the Season of Sungwoo

4.37  ·  Rating details ·  19 ratings  ·  5 reviews
Nobody in Kansas City who lived it will ever forget the summer of 2014. A beaten and battered baseball team. A fan-base who had all but given up. And a city that needed a lucky streak. Then along came Lee Sungwoo. Chris Kamler tells the story as only he can about a pennant chase, a good luck charm and a city that needed it all to break a 29 year long run of bad luck.

Given the awful state of my favorite baseball team the Kansas City Royals, I have spent the last month reliving the glory and the joy of the season of 2014 and 2015 when out of the blue the Royals came within 90 feet of winning the World Series. And returned to win it all in 2015. And 5 years later find themselves at the bottom again. This book brings back many great memories of wonderful moments. I have a box full of memories I have been slowly unpacking this month.

A love story to Kansas City and the amazing Summer of 2014. More than a baseball book, it helps to define what living in Kansas City is like.

As a lifelong die hard Royals fan this book took me right back to the steps I paced in my house during the Wild Card Game! I remember trying so hard not to scream when Salvy blooped the ball past the A's 3rd baseman! I felt the anxiety of the series against the Angels and the Orioles. I was at the edge of my seat hoping for a different outcome that wasn't 90 ft away from tears of joy. Instead the tears of sorrow came back! Mixed in with pride, pride for those boys in blue who fought like hell an ...more
