    My brother J.C. has ALWAYS been a Royals fan. My mom has pictures of him as a toddler wearing a George Brett shirt. He turns 40 next year. He cheered them on in ’85 when they won the World Series. He remained loyal to them during the strike. His signed George Brett picture has followed him to him college and every place he has lived after that. He’s the only Royals fan I know who will DVR an entire game and go home and watch the entire thing. He has passed on his love of baseball and the Royals to his son Christopher who is in elementary school. This year, he has even taken on the responsibility of team “coach.”

    I nominate Sarah Beeghley she is a preschool teacher with a heart of gold. She works hard everyday shaping young minds. She is also a huge royals fan she goes to every home game and is always wearing a different royals shirt. I think she would be a great person to recover the Buck O’Neil legacy seat!!!
