PHOENIX – It’s been almost 30 years since the Kansas City Royals were last in a World Series, but for sports journalist Greg Boek it feels like it was just yesterday that he was watching them play for the championship. Boek said he can remember every detail of the 1985 series, down to where he was sitting for the wild game 7 that the Royals won to be the St. Louis Cardinals. This year’s series with the San Francisco Giants has also gone to seven games, and Boek is making new memories.
