THE COUNTDOWN IS ON!
Even though it’s two years away, you get the feeling it will be here before we know it. The 2012 All-Star Game in Kansas City will be huge for this region and this franchise.
Commissioner Bud Selig officially announcing the All-Star Game, Home Run Derby, etc all coming to Kansas City in July of 2012! Denny was the emcee of the big announcement. Royals Chairman David Glass is to the right of Denny.
After the announcement, the skies opened up and we got quite a bit of rain, delaying the start of the game with Houston. During the rain delay, Denny had the chance to interview the Commissioner. Mr. Selig talked about his friendship with the man who founded the Royals franchise, Ewing Kauffman. The Commissioner reminisced about his earliest memories as a young baseball fan. And, no, Denny did not convince Mr. Selig to ban the DH. But he gave it another try!
After an 85 minute rain delay, out came a couple of rainbows! At the end of the rainbow? The 2012 All-Star Game! The first for Kansas City since 1973. And the third such event in Kansas City history.
