KANSAS CITY -- There's no Royals FanFest scheduled this offseason, but fans can salute the team's top players at the Royals Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, Jan. 11, at the Overland Park (Kan.) Convention Center.
The Royals FanFest, held in January since 2008, is being bypassed as the club concentrates on preparations for the 2012 All-Star Game in Kansas City on July 10. FanFest will return in January 2013.
Award winners to be honored at the luncheon will include Player of the Year Alex Gordon, Pitcher of the Year Bruce Chen and Special Achievement winner Eric Hosmer.
Winners of several other awards and information on how to purchase tickets will be announced at a later date.
