The last time RF Wil Myers played at Kauffman Stadium, it was in the All-Star Futures Game last summer, and the prized then-Royals prospect received a standing ovation.
So Myers, 22, knew Monday’s return wouldn’t be just another game, for a lot of reasons, with the added attention that included a pregame news conference with a dozen local media members.
Myers was pumped for the game, and he got some cheers from the small crowd before his first at-bat. He just wished he had played better, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
