Gloves for Kids

Join some of your favorite Royals players and broadcaster Ryan Lefebvre to purchase new baseball gloves and other equipment for underprivileged youth baseball and softball players. Royals players, alumni and coaches join Lefebvre to sign autographs for fans who donate at least $25 to the cause.

Since 2001, the event has raised more than $120,000 in baseball equipment for area youth baseball and softball players.

Presented by Royals Charities and Ryan Lefebvre's Footprints Foundation with support from Rally House, Pro Athlete, Inc., and 610 Sports Radio
