Washburn Night at the K

Washburn Night at the K banner

Join the Kansas City Royals and Washburn University for the first Washburn Night at the K on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at 7:10pm! Join your fellow Ichabod fans to watch the defending American League Champion Royals take on the Detroit Tigers. Arrive early to see Jerry Farley, president of Washburn, throw out the first pitch to the Ichabod mascot.

Discounted tickets are available for purchase online through the Royals website leading up to the event on September 1, but fans are encouraged to purchase early. It's a T-shirt Tuesday as well, so the first 10,000 fans through the stadium gates will receive a co-branded t-shirt.

Washburn Night at the K is made possible for the University and the School of Law by Advisors Excel, Midwest Health, Kuckelman Torline Kirkland Lewis, Nell Hill’s, Hutchins & Haake LLC, and Polsinelli.
