Young KC Royals star pays tribute to Special athletes

Despite baseball being on hold for now, many KC Royals’ players are busy staying in shape and catching up with friends and family. One player, Nicky Lopez, took time out to send a video to the Special Olympic Kansas athletes.

As many of us struggle with being confined to limited interaction and activity, the hard-working athletes of Special Olympics are no different. Many should be participating or gearing up for events this spring and summer.

Sadly the basketball, cheer and power lifting competitions have already been scratched for 2020. Tentatively the Summer Games are still scheduled for June 5-7 but time will tell if they will be postponed or outright cancelled.
