J.P.’s Day In Surprise – March 15th

Lil Frenchy’s Last Day in Surprise

Today couldn’t have been any better! Mom and I went to Camelback Ranch
Stadium to watch the Royals win against the Dodgers, 8-5! We had awesome
first row seats right next to the Royals dugout.

We went to our seats and I got autographs from Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon,
Lorenzo Cain and another guy I can’t remember and can’t read his signature.
Eric even signed my glove!! Danny Duffy walked by and said, “What’s up, JP!”
before the game and that was awesome!!

The game was very exciting because we got a lot of hits and Eric Hosmer got 4
RBI’s!!! Lorenzo Cain hit another homer!!!! He is so good!!!! For some reason the
umpires kept calling balks. That was strange. In the game Yuniesky Bettancourt
threw me a ball when he ran off the field and it hit my glove and then hit my chin
and fell between the tarp and the wall below me. I reached down to get it and a
nice man next to me helped me get it. When I looked up Yuni was right there
asking if I was OK because I guess he saw it hit my chin. Then he gave me a
“glove high-five” and people cheered as he ran to the dugout. That was very nice
of him to do that!

It was a very long game but I am so glad we won! When the game was over I
saw Cody Clark leaving and I asked him if he broke a bat and he walked over
and gave me a bat!!! It’s not really broken, it just has a crack in it. It is very cool
and it has a picture of a bat (the flying kind) on the bat!

My week in Arizona has been awesome. I wish I could stay longer but Mom says
I have to go back to school. I hope you liked reading all my stories!! I can’t wait
for the season to start and for Opening Day at the K! GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About The Author

Born and raised in the Kansas City area, I was fortunate enough to have a Grandfather that was a huge Baseball fan. He first introduced me to the Kansas City Athletics when I was only 3 years old. He took me to many early Royals games in old Municipal Stadium and I was lucky enough to see some of the greatest moments in Royals history (so far).I am a die-hard Royals fan and a walking encyclopedia of Royals History. I take great pride in that.

    Sarah, Thank you!

    Greg, I think it was Ryan Eigsti. We never got a chance to talk to Anthony, although we saw him from a distance! Hey… no need to thank us. Thank YOU for letting JP share his thoughts and for letting me share some pictures as well. I hope everyone enjoyed reading it all as much as he enjoyed doing it. He’s looking forward to the season and hopefully will have some fun stories to share at that time as well. So great you got to take your son to watch some of the guys in Florida, I am sure he will follow in his Dad’s footsteps for his love of the game! Look forward to visiting with you soon!

    Have loved reading your reports, JP!

  • Greg Schaum

    Also- I wonder if the other player he got the autograph from was the one and only Anthony Seratelli….

    JP and Heather

    I can not thank you both enough (well, I can because I have a gift for JP) for bringing me the game the way it should be seen…thru the eyes of a kid….I found myself remembering trips to Fort Myers to watch Willie Wilson, Hal McRae, a young Buddy Biancalana and all the gang with my dad….

    It really was a pleasure….I took my son (2 and a half) to watch the Orioles and Red Sox minor leaguers yesterday and his buddy Jackie Bradley JR (friendship between us began because of this site 2 years ago) visited us and took pictures (I will post later) so I felt that exuberance of youth in that moment

    Again…all of us at PTP are very happy to have you on board with us this season and we can meet up soon for my gift and discuss how to continue your budding journalism career
