Kauffman Stadium to get dramatic facelift
It is one of the most beautiful ballparks in all of Major League Baseball - Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals, has always been best known for its dramatic outfield fountains.
And now it is about to get much better, as the Royals today have announced a $250MM renovation plan which will be built in several phases, with completion targeted for Opening Day 2010.
More on the plans here at the Kansas City Royals website.
In the USRT rankings, Kauffman Stadium earned 19th place out of 30 teams, with deductions coming thanks to some snooty ushers and generally a horrible location. There will be absolutely NO problem having to twist our arm for another Ultimate Sports Road Trip visit. Will the Sprint Center have a major sports tenant by then as well?
