Royals' Matthews: (At Least) One More Year
October 9, 2008 at 5:08 AM (PT)
KANSAS CITY ROYALS Hall of Fame announcer DENNY MATTHEWS tells the KANSAS CITY STAR that he thinks he'll be back for at least one more year behind the mic for the team. "I would think I would have one more year in me," MATTHEWS told the STAR's JEFFREY FLANAGAN. "It has really helped to be able to take about half of the road trips off. It keeps you fresher. If you think about it: If you’re going to do a full slate of spring-training games and then 162 regular-season games, and you devote your full energy to every inning the way you should, that’s going to be too much.
"But as long as I get the road trips off that I do, I can keep the energy level up. As far as when it will all come to an end, I don’t know. I’m cutting back toward that."
MATTHEWS has broadcast the ROYALS since their inception in 1969. The ROYALS are heard on ENTERCOM Sports KCSP-A (61 SPORTS)/KANSAS CITY.
