Royals star shines bright for Big Brothers Big Sisters
World Series champion, All-Star Game MVP, three-time Gold Glove Award winner and 2017 World Baseball Classic champion — first baseman Eric Hosmer has developed an impressive baseball resume since joining the Kansas City Royals in 2011.
But in addition to making a big difference for the Royals in recent years, the 27-year-old has also made a positive and significant impact in the Kansas City community.
Drew Butera and Chris Young of the Kansas City Royals presented new baseball gloves to Miracle League of Kansas City participants. The event was held on April 23 as part of the Players Trust’s City Clinics program.
City Clinics is a grass-roots campaign developed by – and featuring the active participation of – current Major Leaguers to promote the game of baseball to under-served children across the country.
