Players for the Royals (so far): Willie Wilson (OF), Amos Otis (OF), John Mayberry (1B), Fred Patek (SS), John Wathan (C), Frank White (2B), Steve Busby (P), Dennis Leonard (P), Paul Splitorff (P), Jeff Montgomery (P)
So we're lacking a 3rd baseman and one outfielder at the moment. But then again, we're carrying three starting pitchers for an exhibition. No word on if Joe Randa can be lured to play in this game. I'd urge Bo Jackson to emerge from his mahogany boardroom to be the DH.
Maybe the Royals can find someone to play third base.
And the Former Major Leaguers (so far): Bert Campaneris (SS), Bob Dernier (CF), George Foster (LF), Randy Hundley (C), Todd Hundley (C), Fergie Jenkins (P), Ron Robinson (P), Dave Stewart (P), John Warden (P)
So at least our roster construction is a bit better at the moment. The Tampa Bay Rays can't spare any legends for the Former Major Leaguers team? Neifi Perez is too busy? Luis Rivas too busy with the Iowa Cubs to make it? The former major leaguers are scared to face Team Royals Legends.
These lineups may be different, as they come from a February press release. Not that I would suggest that Bob Dernier might be running scared. But, you never know.
The game will be on Friday, July 17th, before the Royals/Rays game.
