FOX 4's Al Wallace and John Holt got to talk to Ned Yost after they won the World Series. Everyone was still on the field, celebrating the title they've been working to achieve since last year's disappointing loss in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. Now, the sting of that defeat is no more. The Royals are World Series champs, as they knew they would be.
"I've never been around a group of guys as determined as these guys were, as confident as these guys were," said Yost. "When you got a group of guys that you don't have to prod, that you don't have to encourage, that's really, really a great feeling."
"At the end of the year, I was like who was going to win the MVP, because everybody contributed."
"If we can tie the game late, we feel like we're going to win the game late."
Almost everyone they spoke to, complimented Dayton Moore.
"The thing you have to do, especially if you're at the top, is believe in what you're doing. And Dayton and I both believed in what we were doing, not swayed by anybody's opinion. We knew what we needed to do. We knew what we were doing was right. We had to have patience with these guys, allow them to develop because we felt like early on that we had a special group of guys that somewhere down the road that they could win a World Series."
