KC Royals All Star Game preview at MCC-Blue River

The Royals are bringing the Major League Baseball All Star Game to Kansas City this summer, and MCC-Blue River was graced with the Independence area preview for the event. The Independence Chamber of Commerce brought a huge crowd of interested attendees to campus to listen to remarks from Jim Schulz, Independence Mayor Pro-Tem, representatives of the Royals and important fixtures in the community.

The Independence/Blue Springs Examiner featured two stories this weekend about the preview event:
