Some of the Royals’ most popular players have been confirmed to attend next month’s FanFest.
The Royals announced that catcher Salvador Perez, pitcher Danny Duffy and second baseman Whit Merrifield will attend the annual event, which will be held Jan. 25-26 at Bartle Hall at the Kansas City Convention Center.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for kids between the ages of 6 and 17. Children who are under the age of 6 can enter for free. Last year, a kids ticket cost $7 on Friday and $10 on Saturday.
“We decided to make a big effort to make this event kid-friendly,” said Royals vice president of publicity Toby Cook. “We’re going to try to make it exciting for the kiddos.”
