Royals greats to be added to Missouri Sports Hall of Fame

Posted online

When the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame inducts its newest class of honorees Tuesday, the room will have a distinct Kansas City feel.

The 2010 class for the hall’s Honor Roll of World Champions is headlined by the 1985 Kansas City Royals team that won the franchise’s only World Series in seven games over the St. Louis Cardinals. 

Several members of that team will be on hand when the team is honored during the annual Baseball Enthusiasts Luncheon at 11 a.m. May 25, at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, 3861 E. Stan Musial Drive.

Also among the 2010 honorees is former Royals manager Dick Howser, who led the team to the 1985 championship, and Royals broadcaster Fred White.

Howser was an All-America shortstop at Florida State University, an All-Star and Rookie of the Year Award winner during an eight-year major league career.

White, currently the director of broadcast services for the Royals, joined the team broadcast booth in 1973. He also has broadcast several Final Fours on radio and college football bowl games on television.

Tickets for the luncheon are $35 for individual seats, $100 for seats at the head table or $400 for tables of eight. For more information, visit the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Web site.
