Back to Work in 2008
Our offices officially reopened Wednesday and the focus is clearly on the 2008 season. First on the agenda – as many of you who read this blog regularly can probably guess – is the 2008 Royals FanFest!
The two-day event is pretty much consuming our lives, but luckily many of our players are helping to make our first FanFest as great as possible. Today, we confirmed (and announced!) that Billy Butler and Alex Gordon will both be attending the event, joining other current and former Royals for player autograph and photo sessions as well as a variety of baseball panels. Also included in today’s announcement was the news of some great Royals from the past that will be making appearances at FanFest – Royals Hall of Famers Dennis Leonard, John Mayberry and Frank White, along with former Royals Mike Boddicker, Brian McRae, Greg Pryor, Jamie Quirk, Kevin Seitzer and John Wathan.
Their official day-of schedules are being ironed out, but we will keep you posted on our event schedule.
