Korean Royals fan gets royal treatment for first visit to Kansas City

Lee, a Royals fan since the 1990s who follows the team from his home in Seoul, South Korea, was treated like royalty upon his arrival Tuesday at Kansas City International Airport.

Camera crews, fellow Royals fans and curious bystanders watched and cheered as Lee made his way through the gate, wearing his Royal blue jersey…

Kamler said he and other Royals fans have been communicating with Lee for a few years on Twitter. Kamler said Lee tweets with fans during the games despite the 14-hour time difference from Kansas City, and many fans have been asking Lee for years to come to the United States to watch the Royals and see Kauffman Stadium.

About a month and a half ago, Kamler received an e-mail from Lee that said he was going to make the trip. Lee’s welcoming committee has helped organize an itinerary for his week-long stay that includes attending five Royals games. He is scheduled to throw out Monday’s first pitch before the Royals take on the Oakland A’s.

On Wednesday they will visit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, Arthur Bryant’s and the National World War I Museum and Liberty Memorial.
