This may be a first for the Royals.
They are playing a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves this weekend at Kauffman Stadium — and they will be wearing a different uniform each day.
On Friday, the Royals will be wearing their gold uniforms, because they are the defending World Series champions.

On Saturday, the Royals will be wearing their usual home uniforms. The team also will be giving out Ned Yost bobbleheads on Saturday:
And Sunday is the Royals’ Salute To The Negro Leagues, and they and the Braves will be wearing special uniforms. It’s all part of a big day:
The uniforms will be up for auction (www.royals.com/nlbm) starting at 8 a.m. Sunday and going through May 25. There will be another auction of the uniforms from May 26 to June 3.
The proceeds will go to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. The Royals said they raised $40,000 last year and hope to top that number this time.
If you throw in the Mother’s Day uniforms the Royals wore last Sunday and the road uniforms the Royals wore in New York, that will be five different uniforms in eight games.
Also on Friday night, the Royals will show a short video and have a moment of silence in honor of Kansas City, Kansas Det. Brad Lancaster, who was killed Monday after responding to a call to assist other officers.
