KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Win or lose, the team will have a long lasting impact on the City. As a team, they donate time and money to various charities in Kansas City; Variety Children's Charity is just one of them.
Bryce Pinter has dwarfism, but that hasn't slowed him down. He's even played with his favorite Royals Player, Lorenzo Cain. The seven-year-old met the center fielder at McCoy Park back in June. Two adaptive baseball fields were built in Independence.
"When the win column was pretty light for the Royals and the light wasn't shining so brightly, they showed their true colors," said Kara Pinter, Bryce's mom.
The Royals helped fund the fields for Variety Children's Charity, each costing $300,000 to build. The charity helps kids with special needs participate in the community.
"Kansas City is a better place because of the contributions of the glass family and the Royals organization, and Royals charity. We are so lucky that this good karma is coming back to them because they do so much for us," said Executive Director Deborah Wiebrecht.
It's the memories and friendships Bryce has made that will last a lifetime.
