The Royals have had great Rawlings Gold Glove winners before, but never three in the same year until Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez helped make the 2013 Royals defense into baseball's gold standard. Gordon became the first Royals player to win three-straight Gold Gloves since Royals Hall of Famer Frank White won six-straight, from 1977-82. Perez and Hosmer were both first-time honorees.
This is your opportunity to receive a glove of your own directly from one of the Royals Gold Glovers plus a personal photo on-field during batting practice. Includes four (4) Kia Diamond Club tickets and one (1) Premium Parking Pass.
Following the tradition of two Royals Hall of Famers - Dan Quisenberry and Jeff Montgomery - and two-time All-Star Joakim Soria, Greg Holland is the Royals show stopper. The Royals closer set the all-time club record of 47 saves in 2013 and was named an All-Star for the first-time.
Now one of the best closers in the game can be your young players' pitching coach. This 30 minute pitching session at Kauffman Stadium prior to a Royals home game is for three players, ages 10 to 18. The experience includes four (4) Kia Diamond Club tickets, one (1) Premium Parking Pass - plus an autographed baseball.
It is one of most iconic images in baseball history, Boston Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk frantically waving his game winning home run fair at Fenway Park to end Game Six of the 1975 World Series. This auction item brings that moment to your home or office.
You'll receive autographed 1975 era jerseys from both the Hall of Fame catchers that were part of that memorable play - the Red Sox Carlton Fisk & Johnny Bench of the Cincinnati Reds.
It was the play that thrilled Mets fans and made the Red Sox believe their 'Babe Ruth curse' was all too real. The grounder off the bat of Mookie Wilson that went through the legs of Bill Buckner allowed the winning runs in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series to score helping continue Boston's October agony.
This auction item makes that moment yours with an autographed 1986 Mets jersey from Mookie and a 1987 Red Sox jersey signed by Bill Buckner.
This experience gives winners a behind the scenes tour of the Kauffman Stadium press box and broadcast booths. You will spend one inning in the home TV booth with FSKC's Ryan Lefebvre and Rex Hudler, and one inning in the Royals Radio Network booth with Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Denny Matthews, Steve Physioc and Steve Stewart.
In addition, you will accompany Mike Swanson, Royals Vice President-Communications & Broadcasting, into the Royals dugout for Ned Yost's pre-game press conference. The experience includes four (4) Kia Diamond Club Tickets, one (1) Premium Parking Pass and an autographed baseball signed by Royals TV and Radio announcers. Game to be mutually agreed upon. Experience is weather permitting.
You and three friends (a party of 4) will have dinner with George Brett, in a private dining room at The Capital Grille on the Country Club Plaza. Later enjoy Royals Batting Practice on the field. This package includes four (4) BATS Crown Club Seats and one (1) premium parking passes.
Another fabulous opportunity offered to fans is a great deal on a Royals ticket package. The value is $400 but we are offering this to fans for just $99 with all proceeds going to Royals Charities.
Your ticket purchase will benefit Royals Charities. The fair market value of items you receive will exceed the purchase price of the tickets.
