The Royals paid tribute to the Kansas City Fire Department with T-shirts at their Tuesday workout in wake of the deaths of two firefighters in a blaze on Monday night.

As the Royals took batting practice in an off-day workout at Kauffman Stadium, they donned KCFD tees to demonstrate unity and show respect for the two men who lost their lives as a fire-engulfed apartment building collapsed.

Players, including first baseman Eric Hosmer, addressed the subject during their press time, as well.

Kansas City takes on Houston in a series-determining Game 5 on Wednesday.
