Brian Bannister

Brian Bannister pitched for the Royals from 2007-2010, just as his father Floyd did from 1988-1989. In fact, when Brian made his debut with the Royals, that made him and Floyd the third Royals father-son combo to appear in a KC uniform (joining John/Dusty Wathan and Hal/Brian McRae). While with the Royals, Brian enjoyed much success, including the 2007 season when he went 12-7 with a 3.87 ERA. Bannister recently joined Dave O by phone from his home in the Phoenix area and for the first time publicly, spoke about what led to the end of his career and the toll it took on him.

Brad Wellman

Brad Wellman played for the Royals from 1988-1989 and served as the top utility infielder both years he was in Kansas City. A former Giant and Dodger, Wellman was originally signed by and came up with the Royals before being included in a 1982 trade with San Francisco that landed the Royals Vida Blue and Bob Tufts. Wellman’s link to the Royals doesn’t stop there, as his father Gene served as a long time scout for the Royals. Wellman joined Dave O to talk about those days, including his favorite Kansas City and Bo Jackson memories, and about his son Casey, who currently plays in the NHL. *** NOTE *** Dave O was sick during this interview and apologizes for his poor voice quality.
