With the Royals and Oakland A's tied in the the 9th, the department tweeted: "We really need everyone to not commit crimes and drive safely." The Royals hadn't been in a postseason game since 1985.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Audie Cornish. It's been a long time coming for Kansas City baseball fans - 29 years since the Royals last postseason appearance. So with the Royals and Oakland A's tied in the bottom of the ninth in last night's wild-card playoff, even the Kansas City Police Department didn't want to miss out.
