Disbelief rippled through living rooms across the heartland as well as front offices throughout Major League Baseball that cold, November day. For one set of baseball fans, the disbelief turned to gut-wrenching anguish once the words registered.
The Kansas City Royals were moving to Oklahoma City.

Within seconds, the day’s slate of gridiron games turned into below-the-fold stories for what remained of the nation’s newspapers, especially for The Kansas City Star and The Oklahoman. Their readers could care less what happened in that day’s meaningless contests, their teams far out of playoff contention.
