Kansas City Star's Stunning Royals Front Page Is Simply 'Heavenly'

Newseum

Following the Royals' 10-0 drought over the San Francisco Giants in Game 6 of the World Series, the Kansas City Star's front page Wednesday morning pictured an emotional Yordano Ventura pointing toward the sky, honoring the pitcher's friend and former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras, who died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday.

The photo, taken by John Sleezer, captures the intensity of the moment and the headline is simple and direct. Facing elimination, the Royals needed a miracle Tuesday night. They got one.
