Community Drives at Kauffman Stadium

Baseball Equipment Drive

In support of the ongoing commitment from Major League Baseball, its Clubs and the players to increase opportunities for youth participation in baseball and softball, the Kansas City Royals, along with pitchers Kelvin Herrera and Yordano Ventura, teamed up with the Baseball tomorrow Fund (BTF) to host Royals Equipment Day during the Mariners-Royals series at Kauffman Stadium.

In conjunction with Equipment Day, the BTF awarded a grant of $5,000 to Alta Vista Charter School for the purchase of new equipment. Herrera and Ventura, who are in their second year as BTF Player Ambassadors, presented a ceremonial check to representatives from the Guadalupe Educational Systems during a pre-game ceremony on Thursday, September 24.
