2012 MLB All-Star Game: Royals Appointed Right Man For Ambassador Job In George Brett

Back in April, Kansas City Royals icon George Brett took on the role as All-Star Game Ambassador for the city since Kauffman Stadium was going to serve as the host for the 83rd installment of the mid-summer classic. The returns so far have been exemplary as Brett has served as a great representative for both the KC regional area and the team that belongs to it.

"He's done a phenomenal job," said former Royals general manager Herk Robinson. "He started on this in April, and he's devoted every second he's had to it. And his attitude was just outstanding, positive, upbeat."

The current roster of the Royals is keenly aware of Brett's contribution not only to the city and the team itself but to the game of baseball as a Hall of Fame member and 13-time All-Star.

"Huge impact. George is such a special person. You can see how he was a Hall of Famer," said Royals manager Ned Yost. "He gives his all every day. He doesn't care about the fluff side of it. He wanted to play hard, he wanted to run hard on the bases, he wanted to be as smart as he can. Well, he's got that same attitude off the field where he takes pride in the Kansas City Royals, he takes pride in what we do, and he lives his life with a lot of integrity."

"He's the most key figure in Royals history, he's the best player to ever put a Royals uniform on, he's a great person on and off the field," Royals All-Star Billy Butler added.

The 83rd All-Star Game starts tonight in Kansas City at 6:30pm CT.
