The Kansas City Royals have advanced to the World Series since 1985.
The Royals defeated the Baltimore Orioles last night 2-1, and sweeping the Orioles 4-0 in the ALCS.
The Royals have yet to lose a postseason game. They had to defeat the Oakland Athletics in the Wildcard play-in game. That game went into extra innings.
They would go on to sweep the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS. The Tigers and Athletics by most analyst were favorites to win the World Series.
Royals will play the winner of the San Francisco Giants, and St. Louis Cardinals series. The Giants currently lead that series 3-1. Game 5 of that series is Thursday, Game 6 if necessary would be played on Saturday.
The World Series begins on Tuesday, October 21 in Kansas City.
