David Cook – the David Cook from “American Idol” – will be here…at Kauffman Stadium…on Friday.
Yes, it’s official! David Cook is coming to Kauffman Stadium Friday, May 9 to watch his hometown Royals take on the Baltimore Orioles, 7:10 p.m.
Reports of David making the trip to The K started circulating last week, but the Blue Springs, Mo., native had one more round to make it through before returning home for the weekend…and last night he made it through that round!
After a day full of concerts, parades and more, the “American Idol” contestant will visit Kauffman Stadium on Friday, throw out a first pitch (pregame begins at 6:30 p.m.) before the game and then lead the crowd in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch.
Will it be you this Saturday?
The Royals are hosting their second “610 Saturdays” event presented by Miller Lite prior to the 6:10 p.m. contest with the Toronto Blue Jays. This time, 610 Sports has invited 96.5 The Buzz out to the ballpark to host the event. On-air personality Jason of the “Middays with Jason” show will take over the mic for the event, which also feature a live performance by the band The Away Team.
But, let’s get back to Dave, our Baby Ruth “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” contest winner…
For the first pre-game “610 Saturdays” party, we had 15 to 20 Royals fans who braved the cold to sing along to the traditional Seventh-Inning Stretch song. But, in the end, it was Dave who took home the title for his rendition of the classic. Now, Dave, along with all the other finalists from the Royals “610 Saturdays” this season, will be featured on royals.com. At the end of the season, fans will vote for their favorite Royals singer and the winner will lead the crowd in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the Saturday, September 20 Fan Appreciation Night game, plus win two (2) Royals Season Tickets for 2009!
So…do you think you can beat Dave? If so, then we hope to see you at “610 Saturdays”…
