The Royals hosted FanFest this weekend at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City, and despite the loss of a few familiar faces, fans turned out in droves to support their boys in blue. Here are some of the sights and sounds of 2018 Royals FanFest.
Here come the fans!
Despite an uncertain future, Royals fans are ready to support their club.
So what was there to do at FanFest?
FLAGS FLY FOREVER!!!!
There were plenty of Q&A sessions, including one with manager Ned Yost, who is already out of a wheelchair following a serious fall last year.
The players made the rounds and talked about the upcoming season.
When asked about the Royals “rebuilding” Merrifield said “we’re not the ones saying that. Everyone in the locker room believes we can win.”— KMBC (@kmbc) January 26, 2018
Gordon said he’s open to playing CF with Lorenzo Cain’s departure. “I’m sure I’ll talk to Ned about that.”— KMBC (@kmbc) January 26, 2018
Lorenzo Cain is gone, but Salvy is still gonna bother him.
There was a fashion show.
Oh my, Drew Butera in a onesie.
And of course, the fans got to meet the players.
