While the Royals & Cardinals interleague series will never be confused with the itensity of the Chicago Cubs/Chicago White Sox series, the relatively boring and docile fan bases got into enough this past weekend that it actually made the news.

Royals director of event operations Chris Richardson tells me that during the three-game weekend series, there were three arrests made for assault as well as 10 fan ejections for disorderly conduct.

I really can’t believe that this was seriously reported in the Kansas City Star newspaper.  Go to a football game in Philadelphia, and there will be that many arrests and ejections within the first 5 minutes of you arriving to the stadium.  These Midwestern people are just too nice I’m assuming, which is how this made the news.  Boring sure, but nice people.  I’m sure the 3 who were arrested were slapping way too out of control for the 90 year old usher to break it up.
