Regular visitors of Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players, coaches and executives. As such, it is important to us that the Kansas City Royals have announced that Ned Yost has been elected to their Hall of Fame.
Yost becomes the 27th inductee to the Royals Hall and it will become official on September 2, during their home game against Boston.
Previously managing the Milwaukee Brewers, Yost took over as the Royals skipper in 2010, and four years later, would helm Kansas City to the Pennant. The next year the Royals won it all, and he is the only Royal Manager to have won consecutive pennants. Yost is also the team’s all-time leader in wins (746).
Yost retired in 2019, and was eligible for the franchise Hall of Fame for the first time this year. He received 88.2% of the vote, more than the 75% required.
To be eligible for the Royals Hall of Fame alumni must have been active with the ballclub for at least three seasons and accumulated a minimum of 1,500 plate appearances or 300 innings pitched, or managed the equivalent of three full seasons. They also have to be retired for three years.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Ned Yost for this impending honor.
