For those of you who like a little trench warfare with your baseball, your night appears to be fast approaching . . .

This was pointed out to me, and there isn’t much online to describe it.  Friday night May 5th is on the Kansas City Royals’ promotional schedule as WWI Night, sponsored by Waddell & Reed.  In the past the National World War I Museum and Memorial has been involved in these nights, and I assume that is the case this year.

Game time is 7:15 p.m.–Central, of course–and their opponent is the Cleveland Indians.

It’s a rather full night–one event is Zubazpalooza, described as a celebration of the crazy pants.  It is also Buck Night, which means all hot dogs and peanuts are a buck.   And finally, it’s fireworks night.

Anyone who wishes more information should probably check with the Royals or the World War I Museum.
