Royals host tryouts at MCC-Maple Woods

On one of the coolest days of the summer, the Kansas City Royals headed to the MCC-Maple Woods baseball field to host rising players from around the metro area looking for a way into the team’s system.

Players as young as 15 lined up at their positions and showed their talents to Royals personnel, who drilled more than 150 players throughout the days as families and friends watched from the hill overlooking the field.
