The Kansas City Royals just became the first team in MLB history to win its first 8 postseason games, advancing to the World Series for the first time since 1985. In fact, the Royals hadn’t even made the playoffs since their lone championship season, making this one of the more improbable runs we’ve ever seen in sports.
Helping the Royals’ cause is pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who gave the team a strong start in Game 3 yesterday. A baseball guru above all, Guthrie also happens to be the biggest sneakerhead in baseball. By now, you’ve probably seen his custom sneaker vault and read the story on how he worked on a joint PE sneaker with Eminem.
To celebrate the Royals’ advancing to the World Series, we’ve put together a gallery of Guthrie’s best Instagram sneaker photos. From retros to exclusives to cleats, he has it all. Check out the shots below and be sure to follow @TheRealJGuts on Instagram.
