Saturdays at The K…

If you’ve taken a look at the 2008 Promotions Schedule, you’ve noticed that we pretty much are hosting a great promotion every Saturday evening at the ballpark this season. We know you love those promotions (golf umbrellas, bobbleheads, camo caps, etc.), but we know you aren’t crazy about getting to the ballpark two hours before first pitch to make sure you get those promotions. Well, this season, Saturdays at The K are going to be a little different…

For Saturday home games, we are partnering with Entercom-Kansas City, the parent company of 610 Sports, to host Baseball Night in Kansas City: 610 Saturdays presented by Miller LiteIt’s a promotion that features a premium give-away item, exciting pre-game entertainment and a great ticket value!

We are casually calling them 610 Saturdays, but the bottom line is that we want your Saturday nights in Kansas City to be spent at the ballpark. We want you to get to the ballpark early to pick up your promotional item before heading over to the special pre-game entertainment zone – located near Gate A of Kauffman Stadium – to interact with 610 Sports personalities, listen to live music and special guests and take advantage of great food and drink specials. And, to mix it up throughout the season, 610 Saturdays will be co-hosted by different Entercom-Kansas City stations, including 96.5 The Buzz, 106.5 The Wolf, 99.7 The Boulevard, 98.1 KUDL and 98.9 The Rock. So, no matter what your music likes are, we’ve got you covered in 2008! 

Also, as part of Baseball Night in Kansas City, we are introducing the “610 Pen” seating section. Here’s the details: for each 610 Saturday, all seats in View Level Infield section 424 will be available for purchase online at royals.com for just $6.10 (regularly $15). Fans in the “610 Pen” section wilPB-jersey.jpgl be a part of in-game promotions and features. In order to take advantage of this exclusive ticket offer, fans can listen to 610 Sports or visit royals.com/610saturdays beginning the Monday prior to each 610 Saturday. A password that will be announced over-the-air and available online will let fans purchase “610 Pen” tickets.

Okay, so now that you know what 610 Saturdays are you can purchase your tickets for this coming Saturday, April 12 – the first 610 Saturday event, of the year. For the Saturday game against the Minnesota Twins, which also marks the debut of the new powder blue jerseys, fans visiting the 610 Saturdays zone will be treated to a live remote with 610 Sports on-air personality Nick Wright of the “What’s Wright” show, activities for kids and a special Royals Alumni autograph session – featuring John Wathan, Dennis Leonard, John Mayberry and Frank White – from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Oh, and for that great Saturday promotion, the first 20,000 fans on April 12 will receive their own Billy Butler No. 16 Powder Blue Replica Jersey, courtesy of FSN Kansas City. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday at The K!

This is a cool deal. Especially the discounted tickets, $6.10 is a great deal even if it is the upper deck.

This IS a great promotion… except that sec. 424 doesn’t include ANY accessible seating.

It is EXTREMELY inappropriate to have a promotion at The K that EXCLUDES some members of the fan base. I hear Dayton Moore continue saying that he wants to bring Class back to the organization, but this type of discrimination undermines that expectation.

As a person with a disability, I don’t expect “special” treatment… only equal treatment.

When I called the ticket office, I was told that this is a 610-radio promotion, and offered tickets in a different section for $9.00. I don’t care who is sponsoring a promotion at The K, the Royals should be equally (ultimately) responsible for promotion / offers afforded the general public.

The Billy Butler Jersey Give Away was the biggest fiasco in Royals history! It was a mob scene and if you made it through the gates, of which there are far too few, you then faced a frenzied bunch of psychos trying everything to get their hands on one of those shirts. I saw people running out of the gates with 2, 4, 6, 8 in their paws and obviously no intention of stayin for the game…one guy had a box full and stated he was going to sell them on e-bay! Hog!!! As of this morning there are more than 100 up for sale, some at much more than the cost of a club level seat. I was almost crushed in the rush by “Greed Hounds” to get their goodies! Where was security? Where was common sense? Where was Toby Cook? Ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
