Fan Memories Collection
Now through Friday, March 27, you can submit photos, videos and written memories of your experiences at The K as well as your favorite Royals moments to firstname.lastname@example.org . The “memories” will be showcased as part of the Royals 2009 advertising campaign, including in television and radio spots, and print and digital ads. Additionally, the content will be featured prominently in the second annual Kansas City Sky Show set for June 12 as well as at three Retro Nights scheduled for June 17, July 22 and August 5.
“Welcome Home” celebration
The “Welcome Home” celebration on Saturday, April 11 will combine the Grand Re-Opening of Kauffman Stadium with the launch of the 40th Anniversary Celebration. Fans will enjoy special pre-game entertainment and festivities while exploring the new Outfield Plaza area, and one lucky fan in attendance will walk away with $40,000 through an in-game random drawing! It could be you!!
