Photos: Royals sign at Rally House in Independence

Royals Caravan launched yesterday with an awards luncheon and last night, fans flocked to Rally House in Independence for an autograph session.  We had a great turnout – the line stretched out the door (and it was a chilly night in the Midwest).  Lorenzo Cain, Johnny Giavotella and Eric Hosmer led off, followed by Bruce Chen, Alex Gordon and Mitch Maier.  Let’s take a look:

Caravan photos: Big crowds in Nebraska, Missouri

The North Caravan has made stops in Cameron, Lincoln, and Omaha.  The trip concludes this afternoon with visits to Maryville and St. Joseph.  Alex Gordon and Willie Bloomquist are having a great time on the trip.  Here, Alex flipped his nameplate to the blank side and gave his teammate a good-natured ribbing.  Sluggerrr is also on the trip.  Our favorite mascot loaded up on cat food at Hy-Vee in Lincoln.

Sluggerrr's Birdhouse

One of the great things about the office is that you never who (or what) might show up.  We receive interesting items at the office from fans throughout the Midwest and the United States…for instance, someone recently sent Zack Greinke a surfboard, which Zack put at his locker in the clubhouse.  Yesterday we received a very special and unique gift, a Sluggerrr birdhouse.

Birdhouse 002.jpgThe birdhouse featuring our lovable lion comes from Paul and Mildred Knodel of Colorado…they’ve done over 1,000 (our birdhouse has number 1,079 painted on the bottom).  The Knodels pass their craft on to friends and family.  They have donated over 500 of the birdhouses to Ronald McDonald House. 

Sluggerrr has the day off today after the humid homestand.  We know he will appreciate the birdhouse.  We’re waiting to see if he will allow Cardinals in his birdhouse.

Renovation Pictures

ATH took a tour of Kauffman Stadium yesterday…here are a few of the many new features since our tour one week ago.

Signs have been placed on several of the retail stores. Here is the new walk-in retail store on View Level and a retail store down the right field line (near section 246 on your new section 246 on your new ballpark seating chart).

Ribbon Boards.jpgWherever you are in the stadium, you will see scores and information as ribbon boards and scoreboards have been added. The ribbon board has been in place for some time. Yesterday, we saw it in action!

A cool new seating area is the Signature Suite Lounges on the Loge Level. If you’ve got a few people in your group and want a suite experience, but not an entire suite to yourself, this shared lounge is the way to go! Here you see the entrance to the Signature Suite Lounge (below).Signature Suite Lounge.jpg

A new basket fence is being placed near the left field Outfield Box seats. This reminds us of the basket at Chicago’s Wrigley Field…it will be a great place to catch a Royals home run!

Stadium 3.4.09 026.jpgThe Royals Hall of Fame now features a large free-standing sign. A face will be added to this sign, which will light up.

FanFest Photos: Fan/Player Interaction

As we wrap up our FanFest photo coverage, we bring you photos of the players and Sluggerrr mingling with the people who make FanFest what it is…you, the fans!

Many fans smiled for the camera while sitting alongside their favorite Royals at the photo stage. Joakim and Kyle, say cheese!

The interactive displays were a hit with fans of all ages…current and former Royals were on hand with teaching tips for the next generation of ballplayers. John Buck advised fans on batting stances while Willie Wilson was a speed coach.

After participating in the activities, some gave Sluggerrr ‘four’ while others grabbed a hot dog and headed for the stadium seats.
