Royals Game Preview: September 22

Kansas City hosts Cleveland tonight on Fan Appreciation Night at 6:10.  The first 20,000 fans will receive a fleece blanket courtesy of Sprint and the Royals.  Make sure to listen to the p.a. announcements all night as you could take home an additional prize!  And it’s Shirts Off Their Backs Night - you could take home a jersey that is handed over directly from a Royals player or coach!  Just look for the volunteers that are selling scratch-off tickets for the event – proceeds go to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Greater Kansas City.

Tonight’s game will not be televised locally.  You can tune into the Royals Radio Network.

Let’s take a look at the lineups:

Cleveland:  Choo – RF, Cabrera – SS, Santana – C, Brantley – CF, Canzler – 1B, LaPorta – DH, Chisenhall – 3B, Neal – LF, Phelps – 2B, Jimenez – RHP

Royals Trivia Fact:  With tonight being Shirts Off Their Backs Night, we take a look at Royals uniform history.  Ned Yost wears number 3 in honor of his late friend, Dale Earnhardt.  The number was worn by 19 players and three coaches before Yost.  The first player to don 3 with KC was the great Harmon Killebrew in 1975.  Killebrew’s number 3 was retired by the Twins while he was playing with the Royals!
