KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royals fans celebrated the team’s success in the form of music and art Sunday. Students with The Youth Symphony of Kansas City Orchestra honored the team by playing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” The students learned how to play the song in less than two hours on Sunday.
“We thought this would be a great way to show our support to a terrific baseball team and our city,” said Steven Davis, symphony conductor. “We think it’s phenomenal too, we think this is galvanizing for the entire city.”
The group wore Royals T-shirts during the performance and cheered for the team once they were finished playing.
Students with the St. Patrick Parish and School cheered on the Royals in another form of art. They dropped off 200 cards, letters and poems for the players on Saturday.
Other fans took their excitement straight to the batting cages. Mason Davis, a lifelong fan of the Royals, said he learned good teamwork from watching the players.
“They always have that will to come out and always work and always get better,” he said.
For fans like 10-year-old Jacob Goodman, practicing at the batting cages is fun, but going to the games is even better.
“I normally have a hot dog and then watch the Royals,” he said.
