After returning Major League Baseball to his hometown, Ewing Kauffman fulfilled his promise to bring a World Series championship to Kansas City. In 1968, he founded the Royals with his wife Muriel, and the two guided the organization through its first 25 years. In those seasons, the club won six division titles, two American League pennants and a World Series crown. He applied his personal philosophy and passion for original thought to business and baseball, achieving lasting success in both. However, his contributions to Kansas City run much deeper than baseball alone. The foundation that bears his name continues his legacy inspiring new pursuits in education and entrepreneurship.
