Meet the new Ballpark--Same as the old Ballpark

Well, not quite the same, but these are the latest renderings of the upcoming renovation of Kauffman Stadium, and I'm very impressed.  The changes are mostly confined to the concourses and the outfield area, yet the essence of the ballpark will be largely maintained.  The changes will be implemented in stages over the next three off-seasons, and completed in time for the 2010 season.  There are more renderings at the Royals official website.  ANDMLB announced that K.C. has been awarded the All-Star Game sometime between 2010 and 2014Sweet!

I heard on the radio today that the Chiefs will announce their official plans for the renovation of Arrowhead Stadium in another month or so...

Oh, by the way, to those of you that are still bitching because you ain't getting your new downtown ballpark in K.C.get over it!!  WE the people voted to insure that two of the coolest sports stadiums on the planet will remain on the planet!  I said this a year ago following the vote, and I'll say it again:  We don't need no stinking new stadiums!
