KANSAS CITY -- FOX Sports Kansas City will pay tribute to the Moore, Okla., tornado victims during pregame coverage of the Royals-Indians game on Thursday starting at 12:30 p.m. CT.
FOX will air a special feature titled: "The American Way," which will showcase the ways that baseball and softball teams across the nation aided in relief efforts with a focus on the Tupin family from Blue Springs, Mo.
The Tupins lived in Moore for five years and their 7-year-old, Zach, was close friends with Sydney Angle, a 9-year-old girl who lost her life in Plaza Towers Elementary School. Zach raised money for equipment for Sydney's softball team.
The Tupins are scheduled to appear live during the Royals pregame show and game.
