The Kansas City Royals announced on Twitter that the team will honor Yordano Ventura with a patch on their Jersey’s for the 2017 season.

The patch seen in the tweet above will be unveiled to the fans during the Royals Fan Fest this coming weekend.

Ventura was killed in an automobile accident in his native country of the Dominican Republic on Sunday morning.  The young Royals right handed star pitcher was just 25-years old.

Our condolences go out to the whole Royals organization, as well as Ventura’s family and friends.
