Shields, Davis, Santana to attend Royals FanFest

The three offseason additions to Kansas City's rotation -- James Shields, Wade Davis and Ervin Santana -- will attend the 2013 Royals FanFest on Jan. 19 at the Overland Park Convention Center.

Santana (acquired from the Angels on Oct. 31), Wade and Davis (both acquired from the Rays on Dec. 9) will join manager Ned Yost, along with a number of current and former Royals players for the event.

Other Royals scheduled to attend include: Billy Butler, Bruce Chen, Aaron Crow, Danny Duffy, Jarrod Dyson, Alcides Escobar, Chris Getz, Johnny Giavotella, Alex Gordon, Luke Hochevar, Greg Holland, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Salvador Perez, Will Smith and Everett Teaford.

The fan-friendly event will feature continuous autograph sessions throughout the day, as well as interactive games for kids and roundtable discussions with players and front office personnel.

Royals merchandise and memorabilia will also be available for purchase, with a portion of all proceeds from the 2013 FanFest going to Royals Charities.
