Listen to a short radio report on the Royals' visit
This exhibit was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Kansas City Royals' 1985 World Series Championship victory. Drawing on the one-of-a-kind materials found in the Dole Senate Collections and in the Walt Riker Papers, we hope to showcase Sentor Dole's love of baseball and his decades-long support for the KC Royals. Walt Riker was Senator Dole's Press Secretary from 1981-1993 and also an avid Royals fan.
