Hosmer's aggressive base running sets the tone

The theme for the 2015 Kansas City Royals was ninety feet away. It was only 369 days ago when the Royals were ninety feet away from tying the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning in game seven of the World Series. All offseason Kansas City had that bad taste in their mouth and the only way to get rid of it would be do things a bit different. Be aggressive, make the opponents make a play, and that is what happened. Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer made the aggressive move that will be talked about for years to come.

It wasn't the game winning run but it was definitely the most important one. The run tied the game at 2 apiece in the 9th inning and it later went into extras where Kansas City dominated the 12th inning by scoring five more runs. KC wound up winning and clinching the 2015 World Series title 7-2.
