I’ve never been to Kansas City, which is a shame considering I’m a huge barbecue lover. I’ll have to get there sooner or later and in between racks of ribs I’ll be sure to catch a game at Kauffman Stadium. Kauffman is surprisingly the sixth oldest stadium in the major leagues and is a welcome break from the myriad “cookie-cutter” stadiums built during its era. The Water Spectacular fountain and waterfall is one of the greatest features of any stadium.
If you’re going the casual route, I always think it’s great to pay tribute to the team’s and the city’s past. In this case it’s the powder blue of the great 80’s Royals teams with a nod to Kansas City’s previous Major League team, the Athletics. The modern color scheme, with its shift to royal blue, is celebrated in the dressed-up option.
