The KC Royals Fan Fest tickets are on sale now. The event will be held on Saturday, January 19th at the Overland Park Convention Center.
The annual event features autograph sessions and roundtable discussions with players and front office personnel. There will be interactive games for kids. There will also be merchandise and memorabilia for sale.
All of the Royals big name players are expected to attend, including three of their newest additions: James Shields, Wade Davis, and Ervin Santana.
The following Royals are scheduled to attend:
Jarrod Dyson, Billy Butler, Bruce Chen, Aaron Crow, Danny Duffy, Alcides Escobar, Chris Getz, Johnny Giavotella, Alex Gordon, Luke Hochevar, Greg Holland, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Salvador Perez, Will Smith, and Everett Teaford.
It should be a fun day getting excited for the 2013 season. If you are fortunate enough to attend, I’m sure waiting for even spring training to begin will be agony.
Which player are you most looking forward to seeing?
Which player’s autograph would you want most? If I could go, I would probably want Hosmer’s autograph (and maybe a picture), along with Perez.
What player do you most want to ask a question and what would that question be? I would ask Shields to compare what he has heard about the current Royals team to what he experienced in 2008 with the American League Champion TB Rays.
If you are attending the event, let me know what you thought about it. Best and worst experiences.
