Royals honor ACE 30 on opening day

It wasn't the performance on the field the Royals had hoped for but the team's pregame memorial for Yordano Ventura was flawless. Players carried a banner with "ACE 30" written across it, a replica of the arm band the players will wear. Yordano's mother threw out the ceremonial pitch and Eric Hosmer gave a touching speech to the sold out stadium.

After the game the players wouldn't give excuses for their play but said it was impossible not to think about Yordano when the game started.
