No one was more happy to see the Kanas City Royals see off Baltimore to clinch a place in the World Series than Paul Rudd.
Rudd grew up in New Jersey but aged 10 he moved to Overland Park in Kansas and is a huge fan of the Royals.

Him, along with hundreds of thousands of Royals fans have waited for 29 years to witness the scenes that took place at the Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night. The Royals completed a clean sweep of the Orioles and are now 8-0 in the post season heading into the World Series.
PARTY AT MY MOM'S
Amidst the euphoria surrounding the win, Rudd, clearly overexcited and battling a lost voice invited everyone for a party at his mom's.
Speaking to KMBC News he was asked where he would be partying tonight, to which he replied,
"I'm gonna be partying at my mom's house.......hey, party at my mom's man. She's out of town. I got a keg, it's gonna be sweet.........$5 dollar cover"
No word yet if any Royals fans pitched up at Rudd's mom's.
Rudd also got serious and discussed that the pieces have slowly been going into place for the Royals to finally make a post season run:
"This man, Mr. Moore, has been putting together a lot of pieces into place for the last several years. They were great last year," Rudd said. "But watching them this year, when we got on that winning streak this summer, I started thinking, 'This is legit. We got a shot.' But, wow, what a postseason it's been. God, I feel like everything since the wild-card game has been a roller coaster."
Giants look set to face Royals
The San Francisco Giants are one game away from clinching their place in the World Series. They beat the Cardinals 6-4 last night and only require one more win to take them back World Series after their 2012 win.
With three games to go in the series they lead 3-1 and have one more home match up against the Cardinals before the series heads to St Louis. Still, it remains an uphill battle for the Cardinals as they must win three on the spin to clinch the NLCS.
