    97 Marlins v 80 Royals


    It’s another 5 vs 12 battle as the 1980 AL pennant-winning Royals travel to South Florida to face the World Champion ’97 Marlins.  Remember what winning baseball was like in Miami before ownership sold off all the great Marlins players; Livan Hernandez is on the mound, backed by Bobby Bonilla, Moises Alou and more.  The Royals have the slick double play combo of Frank White and UL Washington, not to mention AL MVP George Brett.  Bonilla is an in-game guest; Hall of Fame announcer Jon Miller recalls his favorite player on the ’80 Royals.
