Willie B. Will Wear No. 2 in Kansas City

January 18th, 2009 by cstark

Noticed that Port Orchard native Willie Bloomquist has switched numbers. He’ll wear jersey No. 2 with the Royals. He wore No. 16 with the Mariners. DH Billy Butler wears No. 16 for the Royals.

Willie created a little bit of a buzz at the Royals’ fanfest when he told the crowd that the goal is to go to the playoffs. You can read that story here.

And here’s a story about the player Willie will be competing against for a starting position at second base. The story says shortstop, but Albert Collaspo is a second baseman.

And if you want to makes plans to watch Bloomquist when he comes back to Seattle, Kansas City visits Safeco Field for a four-game series on Aug. 27-28-29-30.

    Sorry to see Willie leave the Mariners and wish him the best of luck. He definitely gave 100% every time he stepped onto the field and was always a threat when on base. Will be exciting to watch him return with the Royals in August, especially if he is starting. Change can be good Willie, we know you’ll be successful.
