Random Royals #10: "Bye Bye" Balboni

**From now until the Royals eventual World Series Championship comes to fruition I'll be posting Random Royals from my collection.** 

Steve Balboni provided the Royals with their power during the 1985 Championship. He hit career highs in home runs, hits, and RBIs but had nearly double the amount of strikeouts [166] than anyone else on the team. The 2014 Royals on the other hand  had only had one batter, Alex Gordon, who hit more than half as many as "Bye Bye" Balboni.
