Royals add Spring Training tilt vs. Angels
KANSAS CITY -- The Royals' Cactus League schedule is up to 32 games with the addition of a split-squad game against the Los Angeles Angels.

The Royals will visit the Angels at Tempe, Ariz., on Thursday, March 22, the same day they call on the Chicago White Sox at Glendale, Ariz. Both games will start at 3:05 p.m. CT.

This will give the Royals three chances to size up their Opening Day opponents, who have just signed Albert Pujols. The Angels will visit the Royals at Surprise, Ariz., on March 20 and the Royals also will go to Tempe on March 29.

The Royals will open the season in Anaheim on April 6.

Orders are being accepted for Spring Training season-ticket packages at royals.com/springtraining. Individual game tickets will go on sale online Saturday.

Information on various Spring Training travel packages can be obtained at royals.com/springtravel.

The first official workout for pitchers and catchers is Feb. 21 and for the full squad on Feb. 25. The first game is March 4 against the Texas Rangers at Surprise.
