KANSAS CITY -- If you know Royals manager Ned Yost, you would expect nothing less.

KANSAS CITY -- If you know Royals manager Ned Yost, you would expect nothing less.

Yost said he will attend Royals FanFest on Jan. 26-27, despite suffering a serious fractured pelvis in late November after a 20-foot fall from a tree stand.

In fact, Yost told MLB.com that he has recovered enough to be back up hunting in the trees surrounding his Georgia farm ground.

"I'm ready to go," Yost told MLB.com. "I've been back up [in the trees stands]. Just didn't see anything."

Yost also said he is ready for Spring Training to start.

"I'll be ready to go," Yost said. "I'm going around just like I used to do. I don't use the wheelchair anymore. I can move. I'm mobile.

"I know what the doctors said, but hey, I'm good. I'm back to what I used to be. People that didn't know what happened won't know what happened to me."
