Twins fans, Kansas City beckons you. You already know the Royals are an historically bad sports franchise, much of that damage inflicted in the Ron Gardenhire decade. Consequently, for one or two summer weekends, KC fills up with Twins fans. If you saw the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby this year and thought, “Hey, that looks like a real city!” then get some friends and road trip — this weekend, July 20-22, is your next opportunity. The seven-hour drive goes fast, the hotels are inexpensive, and the tickets are some of the cheapest in the Majors. You won’t be alone.
