Royals to posthumously honor Star editor Joe McGuff at home opener

The Buck O’Neil Legacy Seat returns to Kauffman Stadium this season, and the first honoree pays tribute to another great Kansas Citian. Kay McGuff, the widow of former Kansas City Star editor Joe McGuff, gets the seat for the Royals’ home opener on April 4. McGuff played an instrumental role in bringing baseball back to Kansas City when the A’s left for Oakland and also served on the Royals Board of Directors after Ewing Kauffman’s death. The seat honors a member of the community “who embodies (O’Neil’s) vibrant spirit.”
