A KC Royals pitcher is doing his part to ensure that families have what they need to keep going during the difficult times of the shutdown.
While KC Royals baseball may still be a little while off, there are plenty of things to continue checking up on surrounding the players and the organization. Whether it’s instructional videos, coloring pages, or just player updates, the team is keeping fans in the loop on what is continuing to happen in this world without baseball.
It’s nice to see the players in their home playing games or keeping up with their workouts, but some of the best stories coming around might be what Royals players are doing to help during this time of need.
The Royals helping out in the community, or hearing about Royals players being great examples is likely a norm for many fans of the team, and it’s something that makes me enjoy this team more and more. Now, Mike Montgomery is taking the spotlight for helping families in need during the shutdown.
Begining in 2018, Montgomery along with his wife founded their organization Monty’s Marvels, an organization that helps families in need across the county. They help a lot of families, and focus greatly on groups like veterans and mothers and children, ensuring they have basic needs.
Monty’s Marvels has worked with the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago Cubs to support organizations such as Emanuel Family and Child Development Center, Leave No Veteran Behind, Happy Bottoms, and Kids Against Hunger.
Infield Chatter recently shared a video on twitter highlighting Montgomery’s latest support effort with Happy Bottoms in Kansas City.
According to the video, Montgomery and Royals Charities worked together on this effort and assisted Happy Bottoms, a diaper bank in Kansas City, by donating a 2 month supply of diapers for hundreds of families.
Montgomery and his wife, along with their organization and groups like Royals Charities are doing great things for members of the Kansas City community during this difficult time and it should make fans proud to have players like this on the home team.
Keeping checking in with the Royals through social media as the days pass. Life without baseball can be stale, but the team is typically sharing player updates, team news, and these great stories about players that make fans love the team even more and stay Forever Royal.
