Preparing for a Royal Coronation

New Crown 2.23.jpgFountains and a crown scoreboard…those are the truly identifying features of Kauffman Stadium. When CrownVision debuted in 2008, the signature top piece was absent. It took time to design a massive new crown to sit atop the world’s largest high definition LED video display. Now it’s almost time for the new crown to go up, piece by piece!

  

Workers have now installed support beams atop CrownVision. Over the next few weeks, the crown will be installed. Check back for more pictures of the new crown, which promises to be a new Kansas City icon!
