I have some friends who want some Frank White shirts but can't make it to the game next Tuesday. Does anyone know if they will let me buy extra tickets and get the shirts? I frequently see people carrying piles of promotions away from the stadium, so I assume you can....but is there any kind of ticket limit or anything?

that was great timing by the royals to put a butler jersey out there. He went on to hit 10 homeruns over the next 5 games or something like that

Does anyone know where you can find one of the old powder blue Royals jerseys they used to wear on the road in the 70's and 80's? I've been trying to find one for my son but I haven't had any luck.

Edit:

This jersey

Damn those people for getting all the Butler jerseys....

Yeah either see if the person is nice and will give you one for each ticket.. Or just go back out to your vehicle and go through another line..

They're expecting the same results after Pena Jr. bobble-head night. ROFL

Seriously, if the marketing department is so half-ass, it makes one worry about the rest of the organization.

I was pretty poed considering i had to pee for 2 hrs nad i was there a little over 3 hrs and they were all gone in about 20 min, froze our asses off.

I heard alot of people just grabbed jerseys out of boxes going in, and people werent really handing them out much. I was just disappointed

i emailed the royals and here is the official reply:


Fans can only receive one promotional item as they enter the gates at Kauffman Stadium. However a fan can enter the ballpark with a valid ticket then exit and re-renter with a separate valid ticket and secure another item as long as supplies last. These guidelines are outlined below from the Royals Promotional Item Distribution Rules List
In order to receive a Royals promotional item, a guest must be in attendance and produce a valid game ticket upon entering the stadium. A ticket will be deemed invalid if the ticket stub has been detached, the ticket barcode has been deactivated or invalidated, or if a re-entry gate usher has invalidated the ticket with a stamp or mark.
Each guest will be given only one promotional item per ticket upon entering the stadium. A new valid ticket must be presented each time of entry to receive an item.
The Promotional Item Distribution Rules List can be seen at the follow:

http://kansascity.royals.mlb.com/kc/schedule/promotions_guidelines.jsp

Hence – while you cannot present three tickets at the gate and receive three items, you could exit and re-enter the ballpark with three different valid tickets and collect three items while supplies last.

We’ll see you at the ballpark on Tuesday for Frank White Powder Blue T-Shirt Tuesday!

also, how early would you folks recommend getting there? i got to the butler jersey game about 2 hours before gametime, and they were long gone by then. i assume this won't be as extreme, but i would imagine they will be gone fairly quickly.

Difference was that was a saturday game and this is a tuesday...id say 2 hours before when the gates are open is plenty of time. An hour or 30 min you'd be fine likely This is also not a jersey

I got my david dejesus and teahen shirt just fine getting there about an hour or so early

I hold 4 tickets to every game. Its only me, my dad, and my gf that go, it was actually cheaper than trying to buy 3 tickets. I go in, hand my stuff to my gf, walk out, walk back in, collect, and mail the extra giveaway to brother in Montana.

i bet there will be at least 30,000. they've been advertising this promotion like crazy on TV and at the games.

so do you actually have to go back through the whole line? how long does that usually take?

I'm a dick. I usually get in line ahead of the people that I'm with. After I go through I get back in line where they are at. Honesty.

I really doubt that. Not on a Tuesday night. That's why they give out the t-shirts on a Tuesday... because they have trouble selling tickets.

I'd say 98 degrees is better baseball weather than the Butler jersey game in the low 40's if I remember right.

You have to kick Joey Gathright's ass before you can get a second promotional item.
