The Kansas City Royals and FOX Sports Kansas City today announced that 10 spring training games will be televised. This marks the second consecutive spring that FSKC has televised 10 exhibition contests.
Ryan Lefebvre, now in his ninth season as the lead play-by-play voice on FSKC, will team with fellow broadcasters Steve Physioc and Rex Hudler for the exhibition telecasts.
