SOME OPENING DAY CLIPS: Lots of great news to get you ready for Monday’s season opener. In fact, MLB’s Kaegel covers almost every angle leading into today’s game. He talks about the cold temperatures in Detroit, compares the veterans and the rookies and, also, touches on Manager Hillman’s tough intro to the Major Leagues. The KC Star’s Bob Dutton talks with today’s starting pitcher and breaks down Hillman’s first official lineup. The Star also has some video posted courtesy of NBC Action News. And, if you didn’t check it out in the Sunday Star, the 2008 Baseball Section is out and online. You can pretty much spend your entire Monday morning checking it out…just in time for the game!
BACK AT THE K: Kauffman Stadium is getting polished up for next week’s home opener, April 8. We know you’ve heard it a lot this season, but one more time: the renovations will be ongoing throughout the 2008 season, but despite some minor construction here and there, catching a Royals game at The K will still be great in ’08!
