KANSAS CITY, MO (May 11, 2007) – Members of the Kansas City Royals will travel to the Greensburg, Kan. area on a goodwill trip to visit area residents on Tuesday, May 15. The Royals contingent is scheduled to include Royals Senior Vice President-Baseball Operations/General Manager Dayton Moore, Royals Hall of Fame second baseman Frank White, former outfielder Brian McRae and Royals broadcaster Fred White. The group will spend Tuesday afternoon visiting area residents and exploring opportunities to further help in the relief and rebuilding efforts. The community suffered extensive tornado damage on the evening of Friday, May 4. The trip follows an in-stadium collection for the Greensburg area that was hosted by the Royals in partnership with Heart to Heart International earlier this week. Fans attending the May 9 and 10 games donated nearly $15,000 to the cause. Heart to Heart International, which is based in Olathe, Kan., flies medical missions all over the world and expects to be in the Greensburg area for four weeks, offering medical supplies and services to rescue workers and residents. In addition, Royals Charities, the charitable arm of the Kansas City Royals, is contributing $25,000 to the Heart to Heart relief effort in Greensburg. Because of the access restrictions in and around Greensburg, members of the media interested in covering the Royals visit should contact Toby Cook at (816) 504-4715 or Lora Grosshans at (816) 504-4360. A detailed itinerary is scheduled to be announced on Monday.
