Celebrate "Halfway to St. Paddy's Day" at The K

It’s never too early to celebrate being Irish…or knowing someone who is Irish…or just knowing that there are people out there somewhere who are Irish! That’s why the Royals are hosting a “Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day” party at Kauffman Stadium on Monday, Sept. 17 when the team welcomes the Chicago White Sox to town. 0917

To celebrate in true Irish-fashion, the Royals are passing out green Royals caps (to the first 20,000 fans), calling in some local Irish bands and hosting an exclusive Irish-themed Happy Hour equipped with a full Irish menu, great Irish music and, of course, Irish-inspired drink specials!

Also, getting in on the celebration, Royals Charities is hosting one of its premier silent auctions on the concourse Monday night and sticking with the St. Paddy’s Day theme! The auction will exclusively feature autographed, game-worn, green St. Paddy’s Day caps that the guys wore for their March 17 Spring Training game in Surprise, Ariz. The in-stadium silent auction is from 5:30-8 p.m. on the concourse behind sections 101-102. Here is a list of the autographed green hats up for bid that night:

  • Royals Captain Mike Sweeney
  • Royals Pitcher Zack Greinke
  • Royals Pitcher David Riske
  • Royals Pitcher Gil Meche
  • Royals Pitcher Jimmy Gobble
  • Royals Outfielder David DeJesus
  • Royals Outfielder Mark Teahen
  • Royals Catcher John Buck
  • Royals Pitcher Ryan Braun
  • Royals Infielder/Outfielder Justin Huber
  • Royals Infielder Andres Blanco
  • Royals Outfielder Shane Costa
  • Royals Third Base Coach Brian Poldberg
  • Royals Infielder Fernando Cortez

Check out the photo gallery featuring some of the silent auction hats.

But, if you can’t make it out to the stadium on Monday…then head to the royals.com Auction page and bid on six of the green caps that are featured just online, but still benefit Royals Charities. The Online “Green Hat” Auction will run until Sept. 27.

Bottom line: If you haven’t bought a VIP package for the Happy Hour/game yet, do so now. After all, "Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day” celebrations only come once a year!
