Kauffman Stadium – Home to the Kansas City Royals in Kansas City, MO

Kauffman-Stadium 1As an Anaheim Angels fan I had wanted to see my Angels at an away game. Therefore, in September of 2010 I decided to fly from Colorado to Kansas City to check out a 3 game series. I wasn’t able to do a tour, but did attend all three games. It was my first game outside of California and I had the most amazing time! Found out where the Angels  were staying and had a drink with a few of them in the hotel bar. It was a blast. With that said, I would like to share the Kansas City Royals stadium called Kauffman Stadium. Continue reading “Kauffman Stadium – Home to the Kansas City Royals in Kansas City, MO”
