Lineups: Perez vs. Santana

Some Kauffman Stadium business before the lineups…

DIPARDO #95: If you are out at the ballpark tonight, turn toward the Buck O’Neil Legacy Seat and give a big ‘ol two thumbs up! Kansas City icon and a good friend of Buck’s, Tony DiPardo is the recipient of the honor tonight and will be perched in Buck’s red seat sporting his very own Royals jersey. If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Tony, who turns 95 this month, we think you’d agree that it’s an honor to have him help carry on Buck’s legacy at Kauffman Stadium.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Don’t forget the extra school supplies for the Royals Charities Back to School Supply Drive, which is going on before the game tonight. The Royals Wives will be camped out at Gate B and additional drop-off sites will be at Gates A, C and D. Everything is going to the kids at Our Lady of Guadalupe Elementary School, so let’s help them have a great first day of school!

NEW PHOTO GALLERIES: Two new photo galleries are up on royals.com…one from the Worlds of Fun Fan Fest and the other from Girls’ Night Out. If you attended the Girls’ Night Out, see if you can spot yourself in the crowd – chances are you’re in a pink hat!

COOLBAUGH AUCTION: And, we’ve added to the list of items that will be included in the Royals Silent Auction to benefit the Mike Coolbaugh Memorial Fund this Friday, Aug. 10. Check it out and decide what item’s you’ll be placing a bid on.

Looking over the lineup got me thinking . . . has Tony Pena missed a single game this year? If not, would he be establishing one or more records if he plays in all 162? If he has missed a game, when was it, and why? Thanks.
