    The 1994 Kansas City Royals season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Royals finishing 3rd in the American League Central with a record of 64 wins and 51 losses. The season was cut short by the 1994 player's strike. The season marked the Royals' alignment into the new American League Central division.

    Offseason

    Regular season

    Thanks to the pitching prowess of Kevin Appier, Tom Gordon and 1994 AL Cy Young Award winner David Cone, and the hitting power of AL Rookie of the Year Bob Hamelin, the Royals had compiled a 64-51 record through 115 games. They had scored 574 runs (4.99 per game) and allowed 532 runs (4.63 per game). The Royals were in the thick of the 1994 AL Wildcard race, trailing the Baltimore Orioles by 0.5 games and the Cleveland Indians by 3 games.[4]

    Royals' pitchers struggled with control during the regular season, as they combined for 60 wild pitches (the most in the Majors) through the Royals' 115 games. Royals hitters were very active on the basepaths, as they led the Majors in stolen bases, with 140, and times caught stealing, with 62.[5]
