Zahner Company began work on the back of the Kauffman Stadium crown.  Three major pieces were scheduled to go in place today.  These pictures show the first piece being hoisted.  We’re going to snap a few more photos, which we’ll post later this afternoon.

Video: Making of the Crown

Attention Royals fans, there is a must-see video on royals.com about the making of the new Kauffman Stadium crown!

Kevin Uhlich, Senior Vice President-Business Operations, describes the Royals’ design thoughts for this iconic piece and how the crown fits with the overall renovation.

William Zahner and Anthony Birchler of A. Zahner Company talk about the engineering work and the materials that went into the crown.

The video concludes with an awesome time lapse…we’ll let you check it out for yourself!
