The Kansas City Royals are a Major League Baseball team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Royals won the World Series in 1985. The "Royals" name originates from the American Royal, a livestock show, horse show, and rodeo held annually in Kansas City since 1899. The "Royals" name may also have been selected as a respectful recognition of the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues and a nod to the Kansas City Blues franchises of the Western League and American Association. This is reflected in the similarity of the Royals logo to that of the Monarchs. The name also followed a theme of the other professional franchises in the city, including the Kansas City Chiefs football team and the-then Kansas City Kings basketball franchise. Kansas City hosted the MLB All-Star Game in 2012 that features baseball player appearances by many of the best players including; Josh Hamilton, Justin Verlander, Joey Votto, Prince Fielder, R.A. Dickey, and Chipper Jones. The National League team was managed by Tony LaRussa.
Audience: Employee Appreciation Day
Location: Sydney, Nebraska
Cabela's was in search of a popular sports star who was also a well known outdoorsman. After several sports celebrity recommendations, Cabela's hired Direct Sportslink to secure Bo Jackson (Kansas City Royals 1986-1990) for their annual employee appreciation day. Bo was fantastic. He spent the entire afternoon with their employees and even gave a motivational speech to the local high school football team.
At Cabela's, we have extremely high standards of customer service with the vendors we work with. Direct Sportslink provided the quality we expect and the customer service we demand. Cabela's seeks to bring our employees something new and exciting every year at our company picnic and the feedback we received from bringing Bo Jackson to our event has been awesome. The energy at the office is at an all time high thanks to you. I would recommend Direct Sportslink to anyone looking for an expert in the sports celebrity marketplace.
