The project was a change of pace for some associates (below).  For Rick Bobki (above), it had some similarities to his regular day at Kauffman Stadium.  Bobki is the team’s lead carpenter.

Willie Aikens and Assistant GM Dean Taylor work to finish their siding project.

Here’s a group photo of Royals associates, alumni, staff from the Northwest Arkansas Naturals and Habitat for Humanity.  Two of the homes that the group worked on are in the background.

Royals have something to "Crow" about

The Royals landed a highly touted prospect in the first round today, and the pitcher was in their own backyard.  University of Missouri product Aaron Crow, who went to Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, was the 12th overall pick.  Crow went 13-0 with Mizzou as a junior in 2008 to earn Big 12 Pitcher of the Year honors.  He was selected by Washington last year, but did not sign.  Crow has pitched for the Fort Worth Cats in the independent American Assocation in 2008 and 2009.

 

Royals team photographer Chris Vleisides was in the “war room” during today’s first round.  Here are some exclusive pictures.
