Renovations: The Outfield
Today we bring you more photos of the renovations at Kauffman Stadium, with a focus on the outfield experience. In 2009, you can take in a Royals game from a new view. You’ll have more chances to catch a home run and on a summer day, the mist from the fountains will keep you cool.
In left field, the Royals Hall of Fame is taking shape. This area will also house five group suites that can host gatherings of 20 to 150 people. Outfield Box sections 104, 105, and 106 will be between the visitor’s bullpen and the Hall of Fame building. Check out those sections on the 2009 seating chart.
As we move to left center field, you can see that the Tri-Vision signs are getting a new look. Outfield Box sections 101, 102, and 103 will be in front of the left field fountains. The new seating that surrounds the old Jumbotron platform will be Fountain Pavilion seating (sections 201, 202, and 203). Tickets in the Fountain Pavilion are just $7 for non-premium games. These tickets will be available only on the day of the game, so get to the stadium early!
Here’s a closer look at center field, where the outfield wall has been removed. Construction crews are doing heavy dirt work in this area.
Now you’ve seen a few of the new amenities in the outfield. Wet conditions prevented us from taking a close-up tour of the Outfield Plaza, the area beyond the new buildings and CrownVision. Look for a photo posting later in the offseason on the these features.
