Kauffman Stadium

Kansas City, MO

Architecture - 7

For an older stadium, Kauffman really holds up. The main concourse is a little high off the field, but open to the playing surface like many of the new ballparks. The fountains in the outfield are a great unique feature that you won't see at any other ballpark.

Location/Surrounding Area - 5

The Truman Sports Complex is located on the east side of Kansas City with not too much surrounding it, but it does offer a huge parking lot for tailgating.

Food - 5.5

Moderately priced and a great selection of frozen items for the hot midwestern summers.

Fan Support/Knowledge - 3

This is just a tough team to support. They were giving away replica KC Monarchs hats to the first 20,000, but only had 15,000+ show up.

Atmosphere - 6.5

Very family oriented with the kids zone beyond right field and Slugger the mascot.

In-Game Entertainment - 5

Mainly used the scoreboard for highlight videos and games. Good promotion of upcoming give away days.

Scoreboard - 6

Video board and Matrix boards are nothing special, but we loved the shape of scoreboard, modeled after the teams crown logo.

Parking/Transportation - 7

Ample parking spots, not too expensive, just a little tough to get out.

Seating - 6

The upper deck seats were pretty high, but ticket prices are cheap.

X-Factor/Bonus - 6.5

We might have seen the Royals play their best game of the year. Overall we enjoyed our time at Kauffman.
