Royals Win it All - 1985
George Brett Named Official Spokesperson for the 2012 MLB All Star Game
With the 2012 All-Star game taking place in Kansas City, there is no better representative the Royals could have selected than Brett. The baseball legend spent his entire 21 year career with Kansas City, and is a great representative of an era when the Royals contended for championships and weren’t viewed as a bottom feeder. The All-Star game and the week’s festivities will give Kansas City the opportunity to showcase some of the club’s biggest heroes, and Brett certainly fits that bill. - by Kansas City News

With the Royals hosting the 2012 MLB All-Star game, it is no surprise that Gordon got the spokesperson nominee.
