Matthew Hays

Staff Writer

Matt grew up in Red Oak, Iowa amongst mostly Chicago Cubs fans, but has been following the Royals for as long as he can remember. As a child many of his memories involved a radio and the voice of Royals baseball, Denny Matthews. He has always had an interest in sports, so writing about his favorite team seemed like a natural fit. A graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, Matt currently works in the insurance industry and also broadcasts high school football games on the radio as well. Outside of the Royals, he enjoys watching the Chiefs and following college athletics. In his spare time he enjoys music, traveling, and nearly any outdoor activity.
