Lottery Awards Royals Season Tickets
Two Missouri Lottery players are the newest Kansas City Royals season ticket holders after the third and final drawing for the Lottery’s Major League Baseball® "Run With the Royals™" promotion. Joe Moseley, Lee’s Summit, and Kerri Brock, Kearney, each won the grand prize of Kansas City Royals 2008 season tickets for two in the "Run With the Royals™" promotion drawing held on Oct. 4.
"I like the Royals, and I have forever," Moseley said.
Moseley said he plans to go to some games next season with his girlfriend and his kids.
"My kids are all excited," Moseley said.
Brock is also a long-time Royals fan. She plans to give some of her tickets to her family members.
"I grew up in the Kansas City area going to games as a kid," Brock said. "I’ll probably take my husband and share with my family. They’re all big fans."
Three other players also won big prizes in the "Run With the Royals" drawing:
- Kerry Warman, Pleasant Hill, won Kansas City Royals 2008 game tickets for a luxury box for up to 12 people;
- Josh Ballentine, Camdenton, won a road trip for two to Chicago for a Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox game including airfare, hotel accommodations, $500 spending money and two tickets to the game; and
- Kathleen Franklin, Belton, won two premium tickets to a Kansas City Royals home game including dinner, hotel accommodations and a ceremonial first pitch before the game.
In addition to the prizes listed above, 100 Royals prize packages were awarded in the "Run With the Royals™" promotion. Each merchandise package includes a jersey, cap, jacket, wind shirt and duffle bag.
The Oct. 4 drawing was the last of three drawings in the Missouri Lottery’s "Run With the Royals
™" promotion, which started on March 28. A similar promotion was held featuring the St. Louis Cardinals.
