Party like it's 1985

Royals celebrate ALDS victory by treating fans to an hour of free booze

The Kansas City Royals celebrated their stunning upset victory in the American League Division Series not by going to Disney World, but rather by partying with fans at a local bar.

The Royals cinched a trip to the ALCS at home, so first baseman Eric Hosmer put out the word on Twitter about where fans could gather to celebrate with the players.

Once at the bar, Hosmer then covered everyone's tabs for an hour out of his own pocket, according to the local KSHB network.
