Bethel night at the KC Royals

Bethel alumni and friends—including those attending the Mennonite Church USA convention in Kansas City the first week of July—are invited to a Bethel Night at the Royals baseball game at 7:10 p.m. Thursday, July 2, at Kauffman Stadium.

President Perry White and Dalene White, associate director of development Matt Hein and alumni director Dave Linscheid will host. The Royals play the Minnesota Twins that evening.

The Alumni Office has reserved a block of seats in section #409 of the Hy-Vee Box level, overlooking the third-base line. Tickets are $17 per person. The purchase deadline is Friday, June 12. Reservations may be made by visiting or calling Thresher Shop in Schultz Student Center, 316-284-5205. Summer store hours are 9 a.m.–3 p.m. weekdays. Payment or credit card information is required when the reservation is made.

The Alumni Office will mail the pre-paid, non-refundable tickets to participants two weeks prior to the game, unless other arrangements are made. Those going may gather at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Royals Hall of Fame at Kauffman Stadium to go in together, or may head in on their own.

The cost of parking and food is additional. For directions, a map and more information, visit the Kansas City Royals website.
