It's been 34 years since the infamous Pine Tar Game. George Brett's ninth inning home run giving the Royals a 5-4 lead was disallowed and the Royals lost at Yankee Stadium. The ruling was appealed and Brett's home run was later reinstated.
On this day in Royals History, Royals Stadium hosted the 40th Anniversary MLB All-Star Game in 1973. Amos Otis was the first-ever Royals starter and collected two hits and a RBI. The NL prevailed 7-1 with San Francisco Giant Bobby Bonds named MVP.
