Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the Kansas City T-Bones follow manager Kenny Hook as they attempt to smash their Central Division rivals and park the American Association title on their mantel. Kansas City baseball legend Frank White dons a #20 uniform all season long as the T-Bones first-base coach. Veteran offensive powerhouse Ray Sadler boasts double-digit homers this season; dispiriting opposing pitchers and making outfield walls desperately question their very purpose. Furthering the offensive effort, Brandon Jones pummels baseballs with shocking consistency, averaging .333 at the plate through 55 games. The T-Bones take on rivals from Winnipeg, Laredo, and St. Paul as well as the 2009 league champion Lincoln Saltdogs, hoping to get to the playoffs to prove their mettle and get out of the September weddings of loose acquaintances.
Promotions sweeten each trip to the stadium, with such events as postgame catch on the field and $1 hot dogs with a beverage purchase on July 25 and August 15 and a rally-towel giveaway on July 31. On August 16, $1 beers keep mouths moist after attempts to metal-scream "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." After the game on August 19, kids hop on the field to run the bases, and August 26 commemorates the end of the 2012 regular season.
