KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The Kansas City Royals honored fallen Clinton, MO police officer Christopher Ryan Morton before Thursday's opening game of the 2018 MLB season. 

Morton, 30, was killed in the line-of-duty on March 6. 

A moment of silence was held for Morton and his photo was shown on the Crown Vision. 

Morton was a full-time officer from February 2015 through January 2017, when he became a reserve officer. He returned to full-time duty last September, one month after another officer was fatally shot. 

He was honored at a Royals game in June 2014, and presented Jeremy Guthrie with a US flag that was flown during his deployment.
