FILE - In this Nov. 3, 2015, file photo, Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost waves to the crowd during a parade celebrating the Royals winning baseball's World Series, in Kansas City, Mo. Yost did something that few thought possible when he took over the Kansas City Royals in 2010: He not only built the organization into a winner but delivered the long-suffering organization its first World Series title in three decades. Now, he's leaving the next rebuilding job to someone else. Yost announced Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, that he will be retiring at the end of the season, ending a nine-year tenure that included two American League pennants and that dramatic 2015 championship.
