Buck O'Neil had an enormous impact on the world of baseball and the lives of the everyday people he touched. Buck spent many days and nights supporting the Royals from the same seat behind home plate at Kauffman Stadium, both as a scout and a fan. To honor Buck, the Buck O'Neil Legacy Seat Program fills "Buck's Seat" for every home game with a member of the community who, on a large or small scale, embodies an aspect of Buck's spirit.
FOX Sports Kansas City joins the Royals to remember the impact of Buck O'Neil and to honor those who are so vital to our communities. In addition to being guests of the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, Buck Seat honorees are featured during FOX Sports Kansas City broadcasts of home Royals games.
The Royals invite community members to nominate individuals they feel are worthy of filling "Buck's seat" during the 2017 season by completing the form below. Nominations should include a description in 100 words or less of why the nominee should be honored for their work within the community, as well as relevant contact information.
The Royals reserve the right to offer or rescind the opportunity to sit in the Buck O'Neil Legacy Seat at any time.
Nominations are now closed. Check back soon for information about nominating someone for the 2018 season.
