Salina Fan Finalist In MLB Contest

Todd Pittenger - June 17, 2015 8:49 pm

A Kansas City Royals fan from Salina is a finalist in a national contest to win a trip to the All Star Game in Cincinnati.

Matt Gerry, a music teacher at Salina South Middle School, and die-hard Royals fan, is one of 15 finalists in the Fox Sports #FANtasticAllStar contest.

To enter, Gerry had to submit two photos, explain why he is the biggest fan of his team, and explain why he deserves a chance to represent his team in Cincinnati during All-Star Weekend.

Fifteen finalists, from regions around the country, were announced Wednesday.  Fans can now vote through June 24th. The contestant getting the most votes will win the ultimate All-Star experience, and will be able to bring along three friends.

Here is Gerry’s submission:

“I would love to be in attendance at the 2015 All- Star game! The thought of being there makes me SALVIate. I’ve been a fan since I was YOUNG. My dad and I take in games whenever we CAIN. Even if we can’t be there in person we’ll try and watch at the escoBAR. INfante game 2 of the World Series we cheered gordON the Royals to victory in the outfield seats behind VENTURA. How sweet would it be to be victoRIOS in this contest? I’d be happier than a MOOSE running around ORLANDO or even HOLLAND to win! I’d even trade in my DYSON vacuum for tickets because the Royals time davIS now! GUTHRIEone knows that KC is for real volQUEZ no team works harder!”


Gerry has been a Royals fan his entire life, and had the opportunity to attend game 2 of the 2014 World Series in Kansas City.


Matt Gerry and a group of friends were interviewed on KSAL Radio as they tailgated at the World Series.
