KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals will continue its tradition in 2014 of honoring the late Buck O’Neil by designating a seat behind home plate as “Buck’s seat” and taking nominations from the community to award fans with Buck’s vibrant spirit and love of the game to sit in the seat.
The Royals invite fans to nominate individuals they feel are worthy of filling the seat by visiting http://www.royals.com/buckseat.
In addition to watching the game from the seat of honor, honorees will be recognized during the Royals in-stadium pregame ceremony.
The first honoree has already been selected by the KC Royals and the Buck O’Neil Legacy Seat program.
