In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here is one of our favorite pictures from last year’s opening of the Royals Hall of Fame. Hall of Famer George Brett and Kevin Uhlich, Royals’ Senior Vice President-Business Operations, are taking a look at the giant number ‘5’. 3,154 baseballs are in the display – one for every hit in Brett’s career.
If you haven’t been to the Royals Hall of Fame, we suggest going before a game. If you toured the RHOF last year, it’s time to go back! The RHOF staff is continuously updating the exhibits. For example, Joakim Soria recently set the record for saves by a Mexican-born pitcher. His hat from that game was on display a few days later!
Last Friday, the Royals were on hand as the Johnson County Christmas Bureau opened their annual Holiday Shop. The JCCB is a volunteer, non-profit organization that serves nearly 2,600 low-income families each year. Third baseman Alex Gordon and his wife Jamie joined a team of Royals associates, led by Kevin Uhlich, Senior Vice President of Business Operations.
Associates were matched with shoppers, who picked out clothing, food and holiday gifts. Coats donated to the Royals Coat Drive in September were among the items distributed.
Uhlich assisted shoppers in the personal care section while Alex and Jamie helped in the toys section. Bicycles were a popular item and we spotted Alex rolling (and riding) bikes out to the shopper’s cars. He was asked to autograph a few of the new wheels.
Check back later for pictures of Gordon’s Saturday community visit in Overland Park.
On Friday, front office associates joined Royals Hall of Fame second baseman Frank White, outfielder David DeJesus, GM Dayton Moore and Senior Vice President-Business Operations Kevin Uhlich to serve a Thanksgiving feast at City Union Mission’s two area facilities. This is the third straight year that the Royals have partnered with the mission.
Founded in 1924, City Union Mission has provided warm beds, nutritious food and a safe place for thousands of poverty stricken and homeless men, women and children in the Kansas City area. The facilities rely solely on support from individuals, churches, foundations, organizations and businesses.
