Home-plate entrance to Kauffman Stadium, Sep-2011.
Looking at the seating bowl through the famous fountains,. Aug-2005.
The fountains and video board (new in 2009) distract attention from I-70.
The Royals played at Municipal Stadium, home of the A’s, from 1969-72 before moving into this ballpark, which is adjacent to Arrowhead Stadium, home of the NFL’s Chiefs. The park’s distinctive outfield fountains stretch across right field, and an additional fountain has been added to flank the video board in left field.
My first visit was on a Monday night in 1992, a “Royal Night” with reduced admissions. I returned and took the above photos in August 2005, during a Royals losing streak which reached 19 games before they snapped it in Oakland two weeks later.
Significant renovations took place prior to the start of the 2009 season; I revisited the park in 2011 and posted two of the above photos.
