Bundled Up and Ready to Go!
Under bright, sunny (and cold!) skies, the Royals Winter Caravan took off from Kauffman Stadium this morning for a shortened trip to Nebraska. This past weekend’s winter storms that crossed the Midwest caused us to cancel the first day and a-half of activities in Nebraska. Two of our three current players scheduled to appear on the caravan ran into travel issues and our radio affiliates agreed the weather was too much to overcome Monday. But, even with the weather setback, we still are looking forward to hitting the remainder of our stops!
And, here’s some good news for our Nebraska Royals fans: Royals first baseman Ryan Shealy and Minor League Player of the Year and Nebraska native, Alex Gordon, hope to join pitcher Ryan Braun by tonight. We expect Shealy to make an event in Lincoln Tuesday evening, while Gordon is expected to catch up with the group Wednesday’s activities, including an event in Omaha at inPlay, 1502 Cuming Street. You can read more about the caravan on the home page of royals.com, and look for more postings from the road on this blog Wednesday morning.
