SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Already being dubbed the most interesting story in sports, the improbable Kansas City Royals are deadlocked in a heated battle against the San Francisco Giants in this year’s World Series.

Improbable, because out of 30 major league baseball teams, they were last – dead last – in two critical categories: Home Runs and Walks.  So their presence in the Fall Classic against the veteran Giants, who have won it all twice in the last five years – the Royals, by contrast only won once, 29 years ago – was a compelling story all its own.

Add to that one of Kansas City’s most beloved players, Greek-American Mike Moustakas, who inspires fans to wear moose antlers (they call him “Moose”) to the games in show of support.  On Friday night, Moustakas got a hit – he now has one in each game, as the Royals beat the Giants 3-2 to take a 2-1 Series lead.  But Game 3 was dominated by superb pitching and even better fielding, by both teams.

The Greek-American community supports Moustakas as he takes the field tomorrow on Saturday for Game 4.  In three games, he is 3-for-10, batting .300, yet to find the power swing that helped propel his Royals to the American League pennant against the Baltimore Ravens, who also have a Greek-American, Nick Markakis, on their squad, prompting some of us here at TNH to dub it the GALCS (Greek-American League Championship Series).

TNH will present “Moose Tracks” updates throughout the Series, which will end either on Sunday, Tuesday, or Wednesday night.
