Valentine's Day at the VA Hospital

2007_va_visit_brett_tells_a_story_1Hall of Famer George Brett led a pack of Royals alumni and mascot Sluggerrr through the halls of the Kansas City VA Medical Center Wednesday. The group took part in the hospital’s annual Valentine’s Day National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans.

Each year during the month of February, the Department of Veterans Affairs takes time to pay tribute to the hospitalized veterans. The Royals, who have participated in the tribute for years, passed out "Valentine red" Kansas City Monarchs hats, baseballs and autographs cards. Brett and former Royals John Mayberry, Brian McRae and Jaime Bluma also delivered story after story from their playing days.

And, here’s something to remember: pitchers and catchers report to Surprise, Ariz., Thursday, and we only have 47 days before facing the Red Sox on April 2 for Opening Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Royals!

There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child. Do you think so? http://www.nicetick.com
