Game 7 of the World Series in Kansas City became even more exciting when I met the couple in front of me.
Brad an Krista Sandt hoisted signs that announced their baby’s due date is opening day 2015. The home opener is April 6 for all of us who wait with anticipation.
The happy couple asked people to vote for names for their tiny babe. Hos or Salvy? (In honor of the Royals star first baseman and catcher.) “At first, we got a lot of texts an votes for Hos! However, as the game went on, people started liking Salvy Sandt.”
I suggested a write -in vote for Alex Gordon, because it would work for a boy or girl. The day after Game 7, the Sandts found out they were having a boy so now I believe Salvy Sandt has a nice ring to it!
The Sandts both grew up in the Kansas City metro. They are life-long Royals fans and season ticket holders. When asked if they would be at opening day 2015 if the Royal Baby has “gone into extra innings”…Krista says, “Ha. Ha. Why not?”
That will give all of us something more to look forward to this Spring! Congratulations Brad and Krista!
