T-Bones to honor former Royals All-Stars

The Kansas City T-Bones are excited to welcome seven former Royals All-Star players in a “Turn Back the Clock” night, presented by COUNTRY Financial on Friday, July 6, at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.

The T-Bones will be saluting Royals Hall of Fame players John Mayberry, Hal McRae, Amos Otis, Fred Patek, Willie Wilson and, of course, current T-Bones coach Frank White. Joining the group will be long-time Royals trainer Mickey Cobb, who was selected as trainer for two All-Star games.

“This is a great event for baseball fans in Kansas City, and a great way to kick off All-Star weekend,” said T-Bones General Manager Chris Browne. “These guys are a huge part of Kansas City’s baseball past and part of what helped make this a great baseball town.”

The former All-Stars are scheduled for a post-game autograph session. The following fees apply:

-- $5 per player, limit one item per player

-- $30 for all seven Royals All-Stars (limit one item per player)

-- Additional items to be signed will be $5 each. A portion of proceeds is going to charity

First pitch that night for the game between the T-Bones and Sioux Falls is set for 7:05.
