Royals charities participate in Home Runs for Hunger

Jamie Squire

The Royals are giving fans an opportunity to play on the field at Kauffman Stadium, and it is all for a good cause.

Royals Charities and the Kansas City Royals Grounds Crew will be giving fans the chance to take batting practice and shag fly balls on their home field when they host Home Runs for Hunger on Saturday, Nov. 10. Participants can donate $2 or three cans of food for one toss from a pitching machine, up to 20 pitches. For $25, aspiring baseball stars can shag fly balls in the outfield for 15 minutes. All proceeds will benefit Harvesters-The Community Food network, according to royals.com.

For each home run knocked over the Kauffman Stadium fences, the batter will receive an entry into a drawing for Royals memorabilia. Participants must bring their own gloves, but bats, baseballs, and helmets will be provided.

The event will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT and is contingent on the weather. Others may watch the event in the lower bowl, and donations will be accepted by staffers on hand.
