Kansas City's Cinderella 1984 season culminated with its fifth LCS appearance in nine years, and its first against a team other than the Yankees. The Royals were defeated by the Tigers in three straight games. The Royals lack of offensive support overshadowed outstanding pitching performances by Bret Saberhagen and Charlie Leibrandt.
