Toma's induction into Royals Hall postponed
KANSAS CITY -- The ceremony inducting legendary groundskeeper George Toma into the Royals Hall of Fame was postponed on Friday night because of rain.
No new date was immediately announced. "The Nitty Gritty Dirt Man" will be the 25th member of the Royals Hall of Fame.
Ironically, his recognition for being a master of grass-growing on playing fields was delayed as the parched Midwest got needed relief from a summer-long drought.
