Kansas City native Hottovy enjoys homestand
KANSAS CITY -- Left-handed reliever Tommy Hottovy grew up watching the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, and he's back at Kauffman Stadium, this time as a member of the team.

"I wish it's something that every guy in this game gets to experience throughout the course of their career," Hottovy said of wearing the uniform of the team he grew up cheering for.

Hottovy made his Royals debut during the team's road trip, and he's excited to finally get back to playing in his hometown. And he already has friends and family members telling him their plans for rooting him on.

"There'll be a lot of people," Hottovy said. "I've already heard aunts and uncles and cousins and everybody saying they're making signs, and they've already had a bunch of T-shirts made and all this stuff. It's been a lot of fun just getting to hear the excitement that they have, too."
