The 4th annual Alex Gordon Classic presented by Price Chopper and benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is scheduled for the weekend of April 27-29. The tournament organizer, Midwest Sports Productions, provides youth from across the Midwest with unique and valuable tournament experiences through well-managed and highly-organized events.
Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon has supported ALSF for 11 years as a local spokesperson. The World Series winner and 5-time Rawlings Gold Glove award-winning ballplayer participates by supporting the Lemon Mixer, meeting children who are diagnosed with cancer, and visits to youth lemonade stands supporting the Foundation. In 2016, he was named the ALSF 2016 Volunteer of the Year! For more on Gordon’s efforts with ALSF, please visit Royals.com/Lemonade.
To help raise funds for childhood cancer research, each Alex Gordon Classic youth team is encouraged to hold a lemonade stand or other event to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The team that raises the most funds will have the opportunity to win various prizes including a Meet & Greet with Alex Gordon and watch Royals batting practice prior to April 28, 2018. The time will be determined. The top 3 teams will meet Alex on Saturday morning and have a chance to get an autograph and a team picture. We are thrilled Price Chopper is the presenting sponsor for 2018!
