For those that have never made the trek to the west side of the state of Missouri for a baseball game, you are in for a treat this weekend.
It has been difficult over the years for the Kansas City Royals to make a name for themselves inside their own state, with the success enjoyed by the St. Louis Cardinals. But when Major League Baseball awarded them the 2012 All-Star Game, their chance had arrived.
While the Royals organization would much rather elbow their way into increased exposure by winning on the field, having the event in Kansas City for the first time since their stadium opened in 1973 is something the entire city will treasure.
Kansas City approved a tax increase in 2006 to finance renovations to Kauffman Stadium and nearby Arrowhead Stadium.
The Royals chose to infuse a new flare into the classic offerings of the stadium.
Here are some of the coolest features at the home of the Kansas City Royals, Kauffman Stadium.
