The World Series of Major League Baseball kicked off with a match-up between two green champions and members of the Green Sports Alliance: the Kansas City Royals vs the New York Mets.
Game 1 was hosted by the Royals at Kauffman Stadium -one of the few MLB ballparks that maintains solar arrays, 120 solar panels in total, which promote clean, renewable energy. The Royals engage fans in their green initiatives through their community programs, such as Green Team volunteers and cell phone recycling events.
After 2 games in Kansas City, the highly anticipated match-up moved to Citi Field, home of the Mets, where fans found a green roof that reduces energy and water consumption and an on-site garden that provides ingredients for ballpark concessions. The Mets Green Team volunteers will be collecting recyclables during Game 4 at Citi Field this Saturday, October 31st.
This postseason, 9 out of the 10 teams playing for a chance to win the Commissioner’s Trophy were members of the Green Sports Alliance.
We are proud to say that this year’s World Series champion will also be a green champion!
