KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Royals will offer some new features at FanFest this year including a Royals Fashion Show as well as an Amateur Scouting Roundtable with general manager Dayton Moore.

For the first time, current Royals players will join KCrew and kids in a Royals Fashion Show. 

Beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday, the latest and greatest men’s, women’s and kids' fashions from the team store will be on display in the event.  Fans are encouraged to head to the seating area around the main stage by 7:15 p.m.

On Saturday, Moore and representatives from the Royals Baseball Operations department will host a Scouting and Player Development Roundtable and question-and-answer session. 

Parents, coaches and kids are encouraged to come learn and ask questions about what it takes to play baseball at a professional level.  After the conclusion of the roundtable, fans can then participate in a breakout session beneath the main FanFest floor.  There, they will have the opportunity to ask more questions and get more insight from the pros on a more intimate level.  Those who participate in the breakout session will be able to return to FanFest following the conclusion of the breakout session.

Throughout FanFest, fans can celebrate the Royals 50th Season of baseball with autograph sessions at the Sprint autograph stages featuring current and former Royals, interactive games for all ages and even more events on the main stage presented by Commerce Bank.  ARAMARK and Royals Authentics will be on site selling the latest merchandise and unique Royals memorabilia, and special activities will be planned throughout the event on Royals Diamond presented by Teva.
