Royals news consists of the schedule being released for the 2021 regular season. Who is coming to the K and where are the Royals traveling to?
2020 has been terrible for most people due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so looking ahead to 2021 is understandable. Major League Baseball and the Kansas City Royals made that easier to do by releasing their 2021 season schedule, which has them opening the season at home against the Texas Rangers.
Some of the noteworthy stadiums the Royals will be traveling to in 2021 is Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs and PNC Park in Pittsburgh for a series against the Pirates. The Royals also host the Pirates, Brewers, and Reds, meaning both Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas will come to Kauffman Stadium to play in front of Royals fans.
Hopefully baseball is able to resume in normal fashion in 2021, but we’ll have to see how this shortened 2020 season goes for Major League Baseball.

At this point, we’re obviously still fixating on the upcoming MLB season that is currently slated to begin at the end of the month. Teams are in summer camps right now and so far, three members of the Kansas City Royals have tested positive for COVID-19 (Salvador Perez, Ryan O’Hearn, and Brad Keller) but none have been affected by it as far as symptoms go.
I’ll be surprised if the 2020 season can get played all the way through, let alone if any meaningful games end up being played before the league decides to shut down again. If that last part does happen, hopefully a 2021 season can happen, but it’s hard to say right now.
If the 2021 season is a go, the series at Wrigley Field from August 20th-22nd is very enticing as a potential road trip. I was fortunate to attend a game there during the 2015 season and Royals fans filled Wrigley to the point where there were several “Let’s go Royals” chants taking place. It was surreal.
Here’s to hoping 2021 is better for everyone because 2020 has been atrocious.
