Chiefs were well-represented at Royals opening day

Some key figures at 1 Arrowhead Drive took a trip across the parking lot on Thursday to support the Kansas City Royals on opening day.

In what has become an annual tradition, the Kansas City Chiefs sent over a contingent to take in the game on opening day as the Royals faced the Minnesota Twins at Kauffman Stadium. The two historic franchises have long supported each other, so it’s no surprise to see the Chiefs out there having the Royals’ back as they get their season underway. This year HC Andy Reid and GM Brett Veach were joined by Hall of Fame linebacker Bobby Bell.

The trio all snapped a photo together. Reid and Veach also took another photo with Royals majority owner John Sherman and Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. The team shared the images on their social media channel.

Check it out:

Patrick Mahomes, a part-owner of the Royals, wasn’t in attendance for this year’s opening day. That’s the second year in a row that he has missed opening day. His recent social media posts have suggested that he’s off training with Bobby Stroupe in Texas for the offseason. He did, however, drop a new colorway of his Adidas Mahomes 1’s that seems to be heavily inspired by the Royals.

Zack Greinke, the former No. 6 overall pick in the 2002 MLB draft, got the start for the Royals on Thursday. Despite a solid performance from Greinke, a lack of run support led to a 2-0 loss to the Twins on opening day. Perhaps they’ll have better luck on Saturday when the series resumes.
