The 2017 Royals FanFest will feature a tribute to the late Yordano Ventura.
In a news release the Royals said a memorial to “Ace” will be located in an area just as fans enter Bartle Hall at the Kansas City Convention Center (previously Autograph Stage 6). The special tribute will feature a pitcher’s mound in the center with a framed Ventura game-worn jersey, video boards showing highlights and a signature wall which fans can sign. Each day of FanFest will begin with a moment of silence to honor Ventura, followed by tributes on the main stage throughout the day. Fans are encouraged to visit the memorial as this two-day space will serve as the main tribute to the late Royals pitcher.
