The third annual Northwest Day at the K takes place Saturday, June 2. The Kansas City Royals will take on the Oakland Athletics at Kauffman Stadium with the first pitch set for 1:15 p.m.
“The Northwest Alumni Association is always looking for different ways to engage with our alumni, friends, students and future students,” Bob Machovsky, Northwest’s director of alumni relations and annual giving, said. “The Northwest Day at the K event allows for all Bearcats to come together to enjoy one of the region’s most cherished pastimes by watching the Kansas City Royals. Being able to enjoy a Royals game with people you have something in common makes this event truly special.”
The Northwest tailgate is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hall of Fame Pavilion, located on the west side of Kauffman Stadium.
