The Kansas City Fire Department lost two firefighters when a building collapsed in 2015.
The Royals were there to support them.
Now – firefighters want to support the Royals through their own loss.
“All of this will probably take about a minute…Three different colors – white, blue, and then the gold,” said Dustin Boyd with E2 Embroidery.
The group is making shirts as a tribute to Yordano Ventura.
“The front will be Kansas City Fire with the number 30, his number on the front left chest.”
A group of Kansas City Firefighters asked E2 Embroidery – owned by a firefighter – to design and make 120 of these shirts to donate to the Royals.
“This is not just a t-shirt,” said Boyd.
It’s a gesture of gratitude.
“Las year they lost two guys and the Royals had a bunch of support for the fire department. This is a thank you for the Royals.”
Both groups are still healing from tragedy – but staying true to one city – one family.
Firefighters plan to drop the shirts off Friday.
The shirt was never intended for sale – but when people saw the design online – nearly 400 people requested their own.
