Players, coaches and staff tour Hall of Fame
Royals players were instructed by Trey Hillman to be at the ballpark and in their batting practice uniforms by 2:30 today for a special event. The surprise was a tour of the new Royals Hall of Fame, set up by Vice President of Communications and Broadcasting Mike Swanson.
Players and staff watched the video from the dugout theater that tells the story of baseball in Kansas City and of the Royals. They then had some time to walk through the exhibit area before having to hustle back to the clubhouse to get ready for batting practice. The tour received a seal of approval from the players and staff, including catcher Miguel Olivo, who told Swanson that the video gave him goosebumps.
