Royals on Wild Ride
The Royals continue to have a presence in the community during the 2006 season. Saturday, the Royals headed to Worlds of Fun for the Royals Baseball Fan Fest. Jeremy Affeldt, John Buck, David DeJesus, Mark Teahen and Sluggerrr signed autographs just inside the park entrance. Over 600 people were on hand to meet the Royals players and receive autographs.
The group met fans for over an hour and then moved on to ride the Patriot, Worlds of Fun’s newest rollercoaster – the longest, tallest and fastest full-circuit inverted roller coaster in the region. Here’s some pictures the Royals players, taken during the ride. As you can see, the ride provides plenty of excitement.
