4. Timed entry. This may be the biggest change. Because the Royals are hotter than ever, this year's FanFest will be the first to implement timed entry: That means you can only enter the venue at your assigned time. Once in, you can stay as long as you like.

Season ticket holders will be the only ones with an all-access pass.

Salvy, Edinson Volquez, Moose and Ned Yost are all scheduled to be there. You can view a full list of the players, alums and broadcasters who will be giving autographs — and find out when they'll be available — here.
