No need to adjust the TV on Saturday night.

The Royals’ jerseys will look a bit different. It’s “Viva Los Reales” night as the Royals celebrate Latin America heritage.

In May, the Royals gave out T-shirts to fans that said Los Reales. Those words are on the jerseys for Saturday’s game as the Royals play host to the Houston Astros.

“We’ve done an annual program, with our ‘Viva Los Royals’ days, but with the success the team is having on the field, it’s important expand our fan base and extend our reach,” Mike Bucek, the club’s vice president over marketing and business development told The Star in May.

The team is also giving away a Yordano Ventura bobblehead.

Here is Salvador Perez in the uniform back in May:
