#Hashtag: Ned Yost reaches milestone win


The Kansas City Royal’s 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers brought skipper Ned Yost’s total number of wins as the Royals manager to 411, the most for any manager in franchise history.

The timing of the victory seemed especially appropriate due to the fact that before signing on as the Royals manager, Yost was the manager at Milwaukee and was fired in 2008.

Yost took over in Kansas City in 2010 and worked his way to a winning season in 2013, the first winning season for the Royals in 10 years.

Even with the improvement, Royals fans were disappointed with barely missing the playoffs once again and many fans took to calling for Yost’s job. Although, with the recent success, many fans have recanted.

The Royals continued to ascend to new heights in 2014 as Yost led his team to their first playoff bid, win and World Series in 29 years.

Currently, the Royals have the best record in the American League and sit 3.5 games above second place Minnesota in the American League Central.
