Some Royal treatment for the family…

July 3, 2010


Friday, July 2nd, we were blessed with the VIP treatment by my son’s agency that represents him in the business of professional baseball. Earlier in the week we were contacted by the West Coast Sports Management, Inc. side of the Gersch Agency and invited to the opening night game of the Kansas City Royals series in Anaheim against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

We had no idea of the VIP suite involved until the confirmation phone call indicated our seating arrangements. My wife, Colleen, John Valek III, the young man staying with us from Florida, our family friend, Brooke Nelson and myself were overwhelmed with the gracious accommodations offered by the recent merger of the two sports agencies. We were also blessed with the opportunity to spend the evening with Bret Saberhagen, his family and friends during the game.

We really appreciated the “royal” treatment of our family and friends. Thanks again to the Gersch Agency and the West Coast Sports Management group for their graciousness.

During the game it was announced on the Major League Baseball site by Dick Kaegel that John Lamb and recently called up teammate Wil Myers were given honorable mentions to the Baseball America’s midsummer Minor League all-star game. With Lamb, Myers, Hosmer and Moustakas representing the Royals this makes the Kansas City organization the only team with four honors.

As of Friday, Hosmer was batting .351 with 43 RBIs and 36 extra-base hits for Class A Wilmington. Moustakas was batting .343 with 19 homers and 67 RBIs for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Lamb was 3-2 with a 1.77 ERA for Wilmington after being 2-3 with a 1.58 ERA for Class A Burlington. Myers had 10 homers and 45 RBIs with a .289 average for Burlington and was just promoted to Wilmington.

Great job Royals farm system…the future looks very bright for the Blue Crew!

We wish you the best son, with your 17th start of the season tomorrow in Potomac.

My name is Zack Hample, and I've snagged more than 12,000 baseballs in the stands at MLB stadiums. I don't blog anymore, but there are hundreds of *amazing* entries here in the archives, so comb through those and make sure to find me on YouTube. That's where the action is now.
