2007 Royals Alumni Fantasy Camp
Playing catch with Hall of Famer George Brett is a dream most of us have.
This Sunday that dream becomes a reality for 72 Royals fans who will be attending the 2007 Royals Alumni Fantasy Camp, Feb. 4-10.
In its fourth year, the Fantasy Camp is an event that puts campers through a week of workouts, batting practices and games to give them a taste of life as a Major League player. This year’s camp will feature 16 Royals alumni “coaches” including Brett, Dennis Leonard, John Mayberry, Brian McRae, Greg Pryor, Kevin Seitzer, Jeff Montgomery, Frank White, John Wathan and several other former Royals.
“We all look forward to this every year,” said Fred White, the director of Royals Alumni. “It’s fun to see everyone and have all the great Royals players get together for a week of baseball. It really feels like the good old days around the ballpark.”
White said this year’s camp will follow the same routine as years’ past with the addition of some live-action games between the Royals campers and campers from the Texas Rangers Fantasy Camp.
