Here are the top five Opening Day moments in Royals history:

1. Six-run ninth inning
April 4, 2004
After Kansas City’s winning 2003 season, Royals fans were in high spirits. But things looked grim for much of the afternoon at Kauffman Stadium on Opening Day in ’04. The White Sox scored four runs in the second inning and had a 7-2 lead in the seventh. The Royals made it 7-3 and then the fun began in the ninth.

Two walks followed by a double from Benito Santiago made the score 7-4. With one out, the light-hitting Mendy Lopez came to the plate with a career total of five home runs. His sixth — and final — career homer was belted over the 410-foot sign in center field for three runs. Lopez said it was the longest ball he had ever hit.

Angel Berroa singled to put the go-ahead run on base for slugger Carlos Beltrán, who capped the six-run inning with a homer that bounced off the top of the wall in front of the fountains for a 9-7 walk-off win.

“This, I’m going to remember for the rest of my life,” Beltrán said. “I’m going to live with this. Opening Day, a walk-off home run — it doesn’t get any better.”

2. A day of Royals firsts
April 8, 1969
The first Opening Day in a franchise’s history is always an historic moment. It’s a bonus that the Royals’ debut ended up being a great game that went into extra innings. The Twins went on to win the American League West that year, but it was the Kansas City that came out on top in this game at Municipal Stadium. The Royals battled back from a 3-1 deficit, tying the game in the sixth inning with singles from Jim Campanis and Lou Piniella, who earlier knocked the first Royals hit and scored the first run in franchise history.

Royals reliever Dave Wickersham came in in the top of the seventh and held the Twins scoreless for five innings before Moe Drabowsky pitched a perfect 12th inning. In the bottom of the 12th, Joe Foy singled and took second on a passed ball. The Twins issued an intentional walk to Chuck Harrison. Then a wild pitch preceded another intentional walk, to Bob Oliver. That loaded the bases for pinch-hitter Joe Keough, who lined a walk-off single off the right-field wall for the Royals’ 4-3 victory.
