The Jim Thome Shift

Getting ready for Jim Thome

My favorite team, thru thick and thin, the Kansas City Royals played a throwback game versus the Chicago Whitesox just recently in honor of the Negro Leagues Kansas City Monarchs, a team in which Satchel Paige and Frank Robinson played on. In this photo they are shifting for Jim Thome. It looks like they are taking him to pull the ball. The Royals were wearing the old Monarchs uniforms
