One group of players will sign from 6-7 p.m. with the other group to follow from 7-8 p.m. Please note that a $25 donation is required for each session, and fans will be allowed to have one item autographed by each Royals player participating in that session.

The event will also include a silent auction featuring unique Royals memorabilia. In addition, 610 Sports Radio, the home of the Royals, will be broadcasting live from Kansas Sampler from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
