Annual Coat Drive to benefit Joplin residents
SEATTLE -- The Royals' last homestand of the season will start on Tuesday, and the annual Coat Drive will be part of it on Friday, Sept. 16, and Saturday, Sept. 17.

Left fielder Alex Gordon and his wife, Jamie, are leading the Royals' effort, which will benefit those residents of Joplin, Mo., that are in need as they continue to rebuild from the tornado which ripped through the community on May 22.

Royals Wives will collect new and gently-used coats of all sizes -- adults, boys, girls, toddlers and infants -- as well as winter accessories such as gloves, hats and scarves. The collection point will be outside the Diamond Club on the plaza level from 6 to 8 p.m. CT next Friday and 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday when the Royals play the White Sox.

As part of the Coat Drive, Royals Wives also will sell mystery bags that include a player-autographed baseball for a $20 donation and autographed player cards for a $10 donation. Click here for details.
