Royals host distinguished visitor Dempsey

KANSAS CITY -- The Royals had a distinguished visitor on Sunday, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Manager Ned Yost revealed the previously undisclosed visit on Monday.

"He wanted to come by and he spoke to the boys," Yost said. "He's a really impressive man. We were honored to have him here. His family came into the locker room and they're huge Royals fans."

Dempsey apparently was in Kansas City on a personal visit.
