The news conference will feature All-Star catcher Salvador Perez and catching coach Pedro Grifol, who will talk about the exciting new jerseys.

In conjunction with the announcement, fans will have the opportunity when gates open later in the day to get a white t-shirt featuring the blue "Los Reales" script as a part of this season's first T-Shirt Tuesday. Jerseys and licensed player t-shirts by Majestic will also be available for purchase in early July in the Majestic Team Store at the ballpark.

"We're proud to add this new jersey to celebrate the multicultural heritage of baseball, our players and fans across the region," said Perez.

The Royals, who currently have 15 players who were born in Latin American countries and two others who were born in the United States but grew up in Latin America, are wearing the jerseys as a salute to players and fans of Hispanic heritage. The Royals join other Major League Baseball clubs using an alternate Hispanic jersey.

The jersey will look similar to the Royals home white jerseys with "Los Reales" written across the chest in the signature blue script. They will debut as a part of Viva Los Reales, a celebration of Hispanic culture featuring live music and a salsa showdown with local restaurants. In addition, the Yordano Ventura bobblehead, the fourth of the Royals postseason bobblehead series, will be distributed to the first 15,000 fans.
