ST. LOUIS (KSDK) -- One of the two winning Powerball tickets was sold just 46 miles from Kauffman Stadium, home to the Kansas City Royals baseball team.

And those lucky numbers, 5-16-22-23-29 and 6, also happen to match up perfectly with some of the great players in Royals history:

George Brett (5), Bo Jackson (16), Dennis Leonard (22), Mark Gubicza (23), Dan Quisenberry (29), and Willie Wilson (6) for the Powerball.

The ticket holders have yet to confirm whether this Royals connection is actually true.

We wondered what a lottery ticket played with Cardinals numbers would look like. Click the video link above to find out.
