Our last game of our tour was at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. It’s a cool park with a lot of fountains and waterfalls in the outfield. We got some tickets from a coach of a college baseball team here in KC. The Royals played the Rangers and there were a lot of Ranger fans at the game. Lots of tailgating going on, too.
Matt: We got up yesterday in St. Louis and had breakfast at the hotel and met the parents of Cardinal player Jon Jay. They were from Cuba and moved to Miami when Jon was very little. The dad talked to us a lot and was really nice. We drove to Kansas City and got there right when the gates opened and went down by the Rangers dugout to try and get some autographs. We got Josh Hamilton! He was a good guy and signed for a lot of the kids by the dugout. I also got a Royal player – Lorenzo Cain. My dad and I walked around the park and watched from the fountains and I got my picture with the Royals mascot Slugger. I had a KC Dog and it was just like a regular hot dog. The best part of the game was getting Josh Hamilton’s autograph.
Graham: I liked the Royals park with all the waterfalls, fountains and huge big screen scoreboard. I got right by the dugout and got a ball signed by Josh Hamilton and that was cool! I also got a ball signed by one of the Royals. I got a KC hat and so now I have a hat from each of the parks we went to. I had pizza and a huge flavor icee. My dad had Kansas City ribs. I think this park is one of the nicest ones.
We headed out to Council Bluffs, Iowa after the game as we have a long trip home tomorrow. Everyone is pretty tired and we miss our sisters and moms. We’ll wrap our report with one more post listing our Top 5 things about our tour.
