If you have appeared on CrownVision at Kauffman Stadium, Chris DeRuyscher was likely involved in making it happen. Chris (at right in photo), most recently served as Director of Event Presentation and Production and is leaving after 13 seasons to take on a new role with the Texas Rangers. We have watched Chris and his team put countless hours into making CrownVision a success. The lifelong Royals fan rarely missed a day, working over 1,000 games at The K. We enjoyed all the highlight videos that Chris produced, however, our everlasting memory is when he left a game hurriedly in July of 2007. It was for a good reason as his wife went into labor with their first child! Best of luck in your new opportunity!
Around the Horn was on hand this morning as a crew from Kansas City-based A. Zahner Company began work on the back of the Kauffman Stadium crown.

Opening Day is just 24 days away! It’s a rainy Friday in Kansas City. The light rain let up enough for a walk to Kauffman Stadium’s Outfield Experience. While there, ATH watched a local sign crew work on the ‘KC’ frame that will house the logo lettering. We also took an up-close look at the pieces of the lettering, and we took a picture of the field.
Fans driving on I-70 past Kauffman Stadium will see crews doing work on the back of the CrownVision board. The ‘KC’ logo is going up this week! Here are a few pictures from this morning and a rendering of what the final logo will look like. The project will take about a week. Check the blog as we post more pictures!

The final sphere of the Kauffman Stadium crown was placed above CrownVision today. Here are a few pictures and a reminder that the open house is on Sunday, April 5, from 11 to 3.
Parking and admittance to the open house is free to all fans, but a ticket is required for entrance into the stadium. Fans may secure tickets for the event by visiting the Kauffman Stadium Box Office on the day of the event, beginning at 9 a.m. We hope to see you out at the stadium!
Our hard hat tour enabled us to see the progress from several angles, including behind CrownVision, in front of it, and from the rooftop party deck above Rivals in right field. Take a look! We’ll post other new stadium features over the next few days.
The first piece of the new crown atop Kauffman Stadium’s CrownVision (the world’s largest HD videoboard) went into place today. We were there to capture the moment. Take a look:
