Royals cueing up 'Play It Forward' contest


DETROIT -- The countdown is about to start in the "Play It Forward" contest to select a 2014 sixth-inning sing-along song for Kauffman Stadium.

Over the winter, fans submitted nominations and 32 tracks have been selected for the bracket-style countdown including the previous sing-along, Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places."

During each home game beginning with Friday's opener through June 7, two songs will put up to a vote by text. Fans must be in the ballpark to vote and will be limited to one vote per game.

The winning song at each game will be played in the middle of the sixth inning and advance to the next round.

Fans can go to royals.com/playitforward for a complete list of songs and an updated bracket.
