Renovation photos: Royals Hall of Fame

The Royals Hall of Fame opens on July 17.  Royals photographer Chris Vleisides passed on a few photos as the construction enters the final stages.  Here’s a sneak peek:

The photo below is a protective case that holds a giant number 5.  Construction workers were busy taking this covering off of the case.  We didn’t stick around to see the final product, which is a plexiglass number 5 for George Brett.  It will house 3,154 baseballs, one for every hit in Brett’s career.

Next you see a panel about Municipal Stadium.  Royals Hall of Fame director Curt Nelson and his team spent many hours researching Kansas City baseball history for the text and graphics that fill these panels.

Fans of all ages will soon be enjoying the Royals Hall of Fame.  Be sure to stop by on or after July 17, or see the Hall of Fame article in Issue 4 of Royals Gameday Magazine, which goes on sale July 17.
