Powder Blues Unveiled
Mark Teahen cited the tradition and how important they were to the fans.
Alex Gordon…well, aside from the powder blue, he seemed pretty pleased to be sporting his old No. 4 again.
The four Royals players helped the club unveil the new alternate home jerseys for 2008, donning new powder blue jerseys during an exclusive event in The Grand Ballroom in downtown Kansas City.
As well as unveiling the jerseys, the team also introduced the season ticket holders to another new addition to the Royals: newly signed outfielder Jose Guillen. Guillen surprised the crowd with an appearance – in powder blue, of course – and received his first Kansas City standing ovation.
