It looks like the Royals take their Mario Kart tournaments very seriously, and we don’t blame them. Of course, it is the offseason for the MLB, so it’s great to see them put the stadium to good use. But, there was still one question fans were dying to know. Who exactly was playing Mario Kart? It turns out that this was part of a Royals Associates fundraiser.
Yep! This was part of a #Royals Associates fundraiser to kick off the year.
