The Kansas City Royals selected Dean Ellen Suni to sit in the Buck O’Neil Legacy Seat Friday, May 24 as the Royals took on the Los Angeles Angels.

Buck O’Neil spent many days and nights supporting the Royals from the same seat behind home plate at Kauffman Stadium, both as a scout and a fan. To honor Buck, the Buck O’Neil Legacy Seat Program fills “Buck’s Seat” for every home game with a member of the community who, on a large or small scale, embodies an aspect of Buck’s spirit.

Dean Suni was honored by the Royals as a Buck O'Neil Legacy Seat recipient.
