"Stars of the Classroom"

Royals Stars of the Classroom

The Stars of the Classroom program will feature one educator a month who has demonstrated excellence in education.


The Royals will work in partnership with local school districts to honor an outstanding educator with the Heroes in the Classroom award. Each teacher will receive four tickets to the game and a parking pass, as well as being presented a game-used baseball in a special presentation prior to the game.
