Laurence Leavy, better known by his Twitter moniker Marlins Man, believes the Royals are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act for fans who sit in the Crown Club seats at Kauffman Stadium.

Leavy, who rose to fame by wearing orange Miami Marlins gear to 2014 World Series games at Kauffman Stadium, was in Kansas City earlier this week. He was promoting the John V. Mesh Scholarship, which is named after a firefighter killed in the line of duty. Leavy attended two of the Royals-Rays games while he was in town.

After last Monday’s contest, Leavy left the Crown Club seats and entered a lobby near the clubhouses at Kauffman Stadium, where he allegedly was told by a Royals employee to use a stairwell instead of one of the two elevators.
