Opening Day Countdown: 35

Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason. Today, there are 35 days left until Opening Day on April 6.


is Eric Hosmer’s jersey number.

In possibly-related news (because Hosmer will be an All-Star at some point and maybe this year), the Royals reached out to me about their “All Star Gnome Ticket Hunt,” so I figured I’d pass it along:

Beginning around noon tomorrow, clues will be released via the Royals Twitter account (@Royals) and on the All-Star Game Twitter account (@AllStarGame).  The first eligible fan to find the All-Star Gnome will receive a voucher for four tickets to MLB All-Star FanFest, four tickets to Taco Bell All-Star Sunday (which includes the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game) and four free registrations into the All-Star Game Charity 5K & Fun Run presented by Nike on Sunday, July 8.  (Plus, the fan gets to keep the gnome.)

Similar hunts will take place in Omaha, Des Moines and Wichita later this month.  We’ll also have one in Surprise on March 20.

If you are interested in more details, I have made the pdf of the full press release available as a Google Document – no sign-in required.
