Legacy Bricks installed, single-game ticket procedure
It’s great to be back at the K! We see something new every day! Today, workers started installing the first phase of the Royals Legacy Bricks. We saw a variety of personal Royals memories on the bricks. Some of the Greatest Moments in Royals history will be displayed alongside the bricks. You still have time to order bricks for your family and friends during Phase Two of the program…call 1-877-KCR-BRIX or visit this page on royals.com. All proceeds from the Royals Legacy Brick Program support Royals Charities, benefiting children, education and neighborhoods.
