Yes, there was a mix of Royals and Cardinals fans among the KU alumni and friends who attended last Saturday’s game between the two MLB teams at Busch Stadium. But no fisticuffs.
“We skewed pretty heavily toward Cardinals fans, but there were a few Royals fans among us,” says Paul Brickler, a’02, St. Louis Chapter leader. “There was a small amount of ribbing, but not a lot, and it was all in fun. This isn’t exactly Kansas-Mizzou. There were a few couples that were split between the teams, where it had the potential to get more serious.”
Aside from the heat, Brickler says the 30 people who attended the game and a pregame gathering had a good time. The Cardinals won 10-7.
“It was fun to get out and see folks we hadn’t seen since basketball season, last baseball season or in some cases new folks,” Brickler says.
