NEW YORK — The World Champion Kansas City Royals are awfully popular these days. Franchise cornerstones Salvador Pérez and Eric Hosmer made a special appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Thursday night and they didn’t come alone. They brought the coveted Commissioner’s and MVP trophies with them. Shortly after Sunday’s 7-2 title clinching triumph over the New York Mets in game five of the World Series, Pérez was named MVP.

Two days after winning it all, roughly 800,000 rabid fans showed up Tuesday afternoon in downtown Kansas City to celebrate with the champs during their parade and victory party. Fallon asked the fellas what’s life been like since taking the crown for the first time in 30 years.
“It’s great. Unbelievable experience,” said Pérez. “There hasn’t been much sleep in the last three or four days,” added Hosmer. The fellas were also treated to a retroactive rap song by Royals legend Brett Saberhagen who won series MVP in 1985.
