INFOGRAPHICS > Kansas City Athletics' 1959 travel schedule

October 2009
This graphic was done to compare the travel schedule of a team today (see 2009 Kansas City Royals' travel schedule graphic) and in earlier times before expansion. There's also a graphic for the 1886 Kansas City Cowboys. I originally chose Kansas City because of its location in the centre of the States, so the Royals graphic would be more aesthetically pleasing. In this graphic Kansas City has the westernmost team in the American League at the time, and because of there being no interleague games back then, the newly-situated Giants and Dodgers don't mean any lengthy west coast trips like NL teams would've made in 1959.
