KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Despite the loss, dozens of Kansas City Royals fans lined the walkway into Kauffman Stadium Wednesday night to show support for the the boys in blue who returned from Toronto.
Fans held signs and begged for autographs as the players walked into the locker room before driving home for the night.
They say they showed up because they want the players to know that despite the 6-to-1 loss to Toronto, they still believe in them, and they still have faith this team will make it to the World Series.
"They do show appreciation to their fans so, they're the heart," Royals fan Brandie Ealey said. "They brought baseball back to Kansas City. So for the fans to show our appreciation, I think it's going to mean a lot to them even though they didn't bring home the win."
The Royals still lead the ALCS 3 games to 2. They will have two more chances to punch their ticket to the World Series.
The team will take batting practice Thursday at Kauffman Stadium to prepare for Game 6.
The World Series starts Tuesday night - hopefully in Kansas City.
