Royals fans cheer Lorenzo Cain in his return to Kansas City
Whether or not you’re a Royals fan, listening to the hometown crowd welcome Cain back was an insanely cool thing to witness.
Tuesday marked the first time Cain took an at-bat at Kauffman since he was a member of the Royals. Milwaukee has played just two series against Kansas City since Cain left after the 2017 season but the third time was the charm as far as fans being able to give him his flowers.
Cain was an instrumental part of the 2015 Royals team that captured the franchise’s second-ever World Series title and was a fan favorite during his seven year career in Kansas City.
