KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- November 1 was an appropriate day for the Royals to become "Number 1." The date will be doubly memorable for Kansas Citians who added one to their families.

A blue light bathes little Juhi Ingram. The light is used to treat jaundice. Juhi arrived at Saint Luke's Hospital 90 minutes before game time and three months early. She was born 30-years after her dad was born.

"That was crazy. I'm like I was born during the time they were in the play-offs for the World Series in 1985," said Ken Ingram.

At just over two pounds, Juhi has challenges ahead.

"She's a fighter. Just like the Royals, I guess," her dad said.

The March of Dimes provided crowns and balls for all the little fighters in the neonatal intensive care unit at Saint Luke's.

At Shawnee Mission Medical Center, newborns got their first ball caps. The caps for girls had bows to celebrate the Royals wrapping up the championship.

Emma Carbasi went into labor early Sunday, and was hoping her baby boy, Brody, would take extra time arriving.

"I wanted to watch the game," Carbasi said.

She did watch until the ninth inning when the Royals made their push and she had to start pushing. Three innings later, she was still pushing as her husband delivered some big news.

"He's like 'We won!' And I was like 'I'm not done, so I'm not winning yet!' I'm like 'I'm not done.' Then like 10 minutes later, he came out," said Carbasi.

Two crowning achievements happened minutes apart.
