Hesston College and Hesston Recreation are partnering to give community members and alumni and friends of college a summer afternoon enjoying America’s favorite pastime with a Day at the K, Saturday, June 24. The Kansas City Royals will take on the Toronto Bluejays at 1:15 p.m., at Kauffman Stadium.
Group discounted tickets for the game are $19 per person. Children 32 inches in height and under are free as long as they sit on the lap of an accompanying adult. Tickets are subject to the Royal’s announced rainout policy.
The event recognizing Hesston in Kansas City was planned as part of Hesston College’s annual Explore Kansas! weekend trip, and Hesston College’s Director of Alumni and Church Relations Dallas Stutzman expanded the offer for the game to the larger community.
“The college has its annual Explore Kansas! weekend trip to the Kansas City area that includes the Royals game over this weekend,” said Stutzman. “In talking and planning with Ryan Magill from Hesston Recreation, we decided to invite the community and other college alumni and friends to come out as well for the event. We think it will be a great time for all of Hesston, and it can help to continue to build community good will. We hope to see a huge turnout for the game!”
Participants on the Explore Kansas! trip will spend Saturday night in Kansas City at the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downton. Guests attending just a Day at the K can stay at the hotel for the same discounted rate as the tour group. A limited number of rooms are available on a first come first served basis.
Baseball tickets and Crowne Plaza reservations can be secured by contacting Sheri Esau at Hesston College at 620-327-8147 or firstname.lastname@example.org. No refunds will be made for the baseball tickets after the initial purchase.
