Messages from the signature walls at Yordano Ventura memorial at Royals FanFest

A fan left a message to late Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura at a memorial during Friday’s Royals FanFest at Bartle Hall.

Nearly everyone I spoke with at FanFest agreed that the Royals did a very nice job with the Yordano Ventura memorial.

There were fan momentos, flowers, the regulation-sized pitcher’s mound with Ventura’s No. 30, radio and TV calls from big moments in his career and signature walls. In fact, there were six signature walls used over the weekend. The Royals had two on display Friday and they were quickly filled.

The team brought out four more on Saturday, and those were filled as well.

I took some pictures on both days of what people had written, and here are some of those messages:
