Underprivileged Kids 'Play Ball!'

 KANSAS CITY, MO - Royals players Willie Bloomquist, Billy Butler, Bruce Chen, Chris Getz and Jason Kendall will provide everlasting memories to a group of 50 children from the Hit It a Ton Foundation as the Major League Baseball Players Trust’s “Buses for Baseball” program motors into Kansas City.

Founded by Royals player Billy Butler and the Bishop Sullivan Center emergency assistance program, the Hit It a Ton Foundation raises money to support the fight against hunger in Kansas City.

Courtesy of the players’ charitable foundation, the children will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, and receive free tickets, food, beverages and souvenirs.

This season, “Buses for Baseball” will provide transportation and personal greetings for more than 1,500 underprivileged children attending Major League Baseball games as invited guests of their big league heroes. “Buses for Baseball” will provide many of the children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.

The Players Trust enjoys support from the Kansas City Royals organization in providing this unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate.
