South Caravan visits Springdale

Springdale David Glass 1

The South Caravan wrapped up with three stops on Monday.  The first was in Springdale, Ark., home of the Double-A Northwest Arkansas Naturals.  Royals owner David Glass met with pitchers Bruce Chen, Danny Duffy and Will Smith before a luncheon, which was hosted by the Naturals and the Springdale Rotary.  The program included Glass greeting the crowd of over 200.  A Q&A session for the pitchers followed, with Chen providing several laughs.   Fans were happy to see former Naturals Duffy and Smith, who helped the club to the 2010 Texas League title.  We also noticed a Bruce Chen Northwest Arkansas jersey – a very rare item as the lefty made just one rehab start with the club!
