Tim Grimes, the Royals fan whose battle with cancer has inspired a social media rally for donations, was invited by team president Dan Glass to sit in the Crown Seats at Kauffman Stadium on Sunday for the American League Division Series game three vs. the Los Angeles Angels.

Grimes, 28, has an advanced form of melanoma. His GoFundMe page has produced $30,000 in donations.

His friends waved a sign at a late-season Royals game that read: “TIM DRIVES THE BUS AGAINST CANCER,” and are asking for people to donate $10 every time the Royals win.
