2015 A.L. Central Division Champions: Kansas City Royals

Tonight, the Kansas City Royals clinched their division for the first time in 30 years.  It happened at home with a 10-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners.  Back in 1985, winning their division was commonplace for the Royals, having accomplished the feat 7 times over a 10-year period from 1976-1985.  That was back when each league was divided into only two divisions, meaning more teams to compete against to win the pennant.  The royals will be heading into the postseason for the 9th time in franchise history, but unlike last year, it will be as the division winner.  They've really come a long way.

Here's tonight's headline from the Kansas City Star:
