Getz, Holland taking part in Equipment Drive

DETROIT -- Second baseman Chris Getz and pitcher Greg Holland are leading the Royals' eighth annual Baseball Equipment Drive on Thursday and Friday at Kauffman Stadium. The drive, presented by the Baseball Tomorrow Fund and Rawlings, will benefit the Alta Vista Charter School baseball program.

Royals Wives will help collect new and gently used baseball and softball equipment outside the Diamond Club and the Majestic Team Store on the Field/Plaza Level from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. CT before and during the games against the Yankees.

Cash donations also will be accepted. Fans making a $40 contribution will receive a baseball and fans making a $10 donation will receive a photo card, each item autographed by a Royals player of choice while supplies last.
