KANSAS CITY, MO (June 11, 2007) — The Kansas City Royals want fans to have a say in choosing a signature song for Kansas City and Kauffman Stadium during the seventh-inning stretch. Everyone knows the essential seventh-inning stretch song will always be “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”—it’s a baseball tradition! But after that song, several clubs and fans have adopted unique songs and truly made them their own. The folks in Houston go “Deep In the Heart Of Texas” with the Astros, and in Milwaukee they “Roll Out The Barrell” and polka, while Red Sox Nation belts out “Sweet Caroline” as a Fenway Park tradition each game. What should Kansas City’s signature sing-a-long be? Do Royals fans want to chart their own course or choose a tried-and-true tune used in other parks? Those questions will be answered in an online poll open to all fans at royals.com. Fans can vote among 10 selected songs or write in a favorite of their own. Nominated songs should be one-of-a-kind tunes that are easy to recognize and fun to sing. The top three vote getters will face off in a final vote the week of July 2. The fans’ choice will then be played during every seventh-inning stretch following the All-Star break at Kauffman Stadium. Royals Fans can choose from these ten songs or nominate their own at royals.com: 1. “Last Dance” by Donna Summer 2. “Son of a Preacher Man” by Dusty Springfield 3. “Kansas City” by The Beatles 4. “The Limbo” 5. “Cotton Eyed Joe” by Rednex 6. “Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash 7. “Dancing Queen” by ABBA 8. “Come on Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners 9. “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)” by Michael Jackson 10. “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond For more information, members of the media may contact the Royals Publicity Department at (816) 921-8000. ###
