KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A special guest showed up at a homeless shelter for veterans on Wednesday, listened to some stories, laughed, and signed his autograph. Kansas City Royals’ closer Wade Davis visited ReStart, 918 E. 9th Street, a shelter that helps veterans with temporary housing until they can find a more permanent place. ReStart is one of the Royals’ charities, a part of the Diamond of Dreams Gala.

“These people have sacrificed a lot to do what we do, so that’s why I want to come by, hear some stories and give back as much as we can,” said Davis.

ReStart served nearly 25,000 people last year alone.

“It’s an honor for us to be in the same room as them, so, it’s a huge privilege for us to get to meet people who have served our country. It’s a really good experience,” Davis said.
