KC Royals & TUKHS Offer Uniform Program to 3&2 Teams
by posted 01/11/2021


After a season of “fits and starts” in 2020, players and parents are excited to get back on the baseball field this spring and turn the page to a new season. Registrations are pouring in to 3&2’s Spring/Summer leagues, and the League is excited about the depth of our divisions at all playing levels.

If you are a participant in one of 3&2’s PreK, Kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd Grade league teams, your team or player will have the opportunity to take advantage of the league uniform program sponsored by the Kansas City Royals and the University of Kansas Health System. This program, now in its 7th consecutive year, provides league teams with the option of selecting any one of seven different uniform top options and a hat from Outdoor Cap. Each uniform top has a unique Kansas City Royals logo from MLB’s vintage collection.

3&2 has as many as 200 teams collectively at these grade levels so supporting upwards of 2500 local players and coaches through this program is a substantial investment in youth baseball through 3&2 by the Royals and KU. 

This program is not exclusive to 3&2, but Kansas City is one of only five U.S. cities with an MLB-affiliated franchise that supports it youth leagues with a program like this one.

    • Spray Charts

  • 4 Age groups to choose from: 9-10u (3rd-4th grade), 11-12u (5th-6th grade), 13-14u (7th-8th grade), & high school (15U-18U)

Here's what a few of our coaches had to say about last season.

  • "This is a really cool thing that we will be doing again!" Coach R.
  • "This is awesome!" Coach J.
  • "That was a bunch of fun!" Coach S.

Hit Trax is for hitting only so if you’re resting your arm in the off-season, which we recommend, but still want to stay sharp with the bat, here’s your opportunity!
