The Ned Yost story that sticks in the mind came from the playoff runs. Of course thats when it happened. Nobodys career in Kansas City sports turned quicker or with more force than Yosts during those two magical years.
The postseasons began with that 2014 Wild Card game, and by now we all remember it for Salvador Perez somehow pulling a pitch from the left handed batters box down the third base line. That moment changed the Royals. Changed baseball in Kansas City.
It also may have saved Yosts job.
