Bobby Witt Jr. His first career success with the game-winning RBI team against the Cleveland Guardians. The royal family won the match 3-1.
Opening day couldn’t be better for Kansas City Royals fans.
First, the return of Zack Greinke was a smash hit. The former and current royal threw less than six innings of a one-running ball, keeping the goalkeeper at bay long enough to finally reach Shane Pepper, and then the Cleveland ball.
Witt Jr.’s RBI double came from Tristan Mackenzie at the bottom of the eighth inning.
The 21-year-old ranks number 10 on all lists of top potential baseball players. The son of a former MLB player, he’s ready to make his mark as one of the best young players in all of baseball.
Opening Day: Bobby Waite Jr makes his mark
Witt Jr. gave Peak behind the curtain before the opening, revealing how members of the royal family initially told him he would start at third base.
“All the men were congratulating me,” Witt told reporters. According to ESPN. “I can’t really express the feeling of what it was like. My stomach sank. Tears came from my eyes. It’s something I will never forget.”
He won’t have to. If Witt Jr. gets his way, he’ll stay in the majors for the rest of his playing days.
It’s on its way to a quick start.
