A Closer Look At The 2012 MLB All-Star Game Charity 5K And Fun Run

After a one year hiatus, the All-Star Game Charity 5K and Fun Run will return to the 2012 MLB All-Star game held in Kansas City. The event was canceled in Phoenix last year due to extreme temperatures, but was a big success previously in Anaheim and St. Louis.

The 5K race will start at 7:30, while the one mile fun run will start thirty minutes later. Registration now includes an early price of $25 (adult) and $20 (under-13) for the 5K and $20 (adult) and $15 (under-13) for the Fun Run. Space is limited so participants are encouraged to sign up early. Registration and event information can be found here.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Participants will run and walk on an All-Star themed course which will feature appearances by MLB legends, mascots and celebrity guests.

The Royals begin a long home stand tonight, when the team begins its series against the New York Yankees. After a 12 game losing streak, Kansas City has won four of its last seven games, including a thrilling 3-2 victory over Detroit last night.

Royals Drop Home Series to A's - Francis Still Winless

The Royals finally hit a speed bump at home, dropping its latest series to the Oakland A's. Kansas City lost the final game of the series 5-2, dropping its record at the K to 15-8 this year. The Royals are 18-16 overall, and still remain in second place in the AL Central.

Jeff Francis yet again failed to earn a win, and the Royals starter might hit Independance day before he notches a victory at this rate. Francis isn't pitching terribly, and the Royals had an idea of what they were getting with the veteran. The lefty has a career ERA of 4.79 and an overall record of 55-54, and this season his ERA sits at 5.09. The Royals just need Francis to pitch decently and keep them in games, and he was able to do that in his last start. The Royals offense couldn't get anything going against the A's Tyson Ross, who is off to a solid start this season.

Kansas City is off today, and travels to New York to face the Yankees tomorrow. The matchup with the Yankees gives the Royals an opportunity to prove if they are for real or not to the entire nation. Don't hold your breath.
