When you say this jersey is from the 1946 Kansas City Royals. "The Royals started in 1969, that isn't correct." "Allow me to explain.' Jackie Robinson and Satchel Paige both played for this team. It was the first jersey I bought from Ebbets Field Flannels. When I substitute teach on Opening Day, I wear this jersey and it allows me an intro to Kansas City history and ***** League History.
