Carry me, Caravan, take me away…

The Royals Caravan is a tradition that predates the team on the field…the first caravan was in 1968. This year’s caravan will travel to 34 communities in six states. Today, the Royals released the dates and participants for upcoming caravans in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri. Caravans to Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma will take place the week after FanFest, which is scheduled for Jan. 17-18. Preliminary information for those caravans is now available on royals.com. Here is the information for next week’s stops:

It’s nice they are doing this, but in Omaha, 10 am – noon, on a weekday? Obviously they dont expect any younger fans to attend- Or even most who have to work during the day.
