MLB – 1985 – World Series Game 3 Cardinals Vs Royals Introduction Of The Players Coaches + Managers

The Royals got back into the series by riding ace Bret Saberhagen to a 6–1 victory against twenty-game winner Joaquín Andújar…..as Saberhagen flashed messages on the television screen to his pregnant wife….who was due to give birth any day…..which she eventually gave birth on October 26 during Game 6. The Royals went up 2–0 in the fourth on Lonnie Smith’s two-run double.  Royals second baseman Frank White made history by becoming the first second baseman in the history of the World Series to hit in the clean-up spot in the batting order….when he came through with a two-run home run off of Andújar in the fifth. The Cardinals scored their only run of the game in the sixth off of Bret Saberhagen on consecutive singles by Ozzie Smith, Tom Herr, and Jack Clark. The Royals padded their lead in the seventh off of Ricky Horton when George Brett drew a leadoff walk, moved to second on a balk, then scored on White’s double. Two outs later, White scored on Buddy Biancalana’s single to cap the scoring. 

The introduction of the players, coaches and managers is always a highlight for any and all baseball fans….as it is a tradition that has spanned the test of time.
