Ballpark Blueprints: Dream Factory
Since 1993, the Royals have partnered with the Dream Factory of Greater Kansas City to make dreams come true for critically or chronically ill children in our community. As our players learn soon after joining the Royals, Wednesday is Dream Factory Day.
For each Wednesday home game throughout the season, the Royals invite a Dream Factory child to join us for a special day at the ballpark. The child and their families arrive at Kauffman Stadium in a limousine and are then escorted down to the Royals dugout where they meet Royals players and watch batting practice from the best seat in the house. After being recognized during pregame ceremonies, the child enjoys the game and refreshments. Each child’s Royals experience appears on the KMBC-TV (Channel 9) 10 p.m. newscast.
