Amos Otis visits police ahead of Legends Night at the K
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royals Hall of Famer Amos Otis has lived in Las Vegas for the past 20 years, but he’s in town this weekend for Legends Night at Kauffman Stadium when the Royals take on Toronto.
On Thursday, the former center fielder hung out with officers at Central Division, 1200 Linwood.
The Royals brought in pizza and let Amos and the officers talk and laugh during the lunch hour.
“I always chat with the good folks of the police department because they looking out for me and everybody else,” said Otis.
A common question longtime Royals fans want to know is if he sees any of his teammates anymore.
“I get to see some of them at golf tournaments and things across the country. Whenever I come here I run across Freddie Patek, Mayberry and uh, the big man, Frank White,” he said with a smile.
Otis said it was great to see the Royals success of 2014 and 2015.
“They could have done that in 1980 when I was here,” he said. “This year fallen’ on hard times cause the guys are getting’ injured. Does’t have the same luck as they had the year before,” he said.
