It is notable in that it had unique architecture in an era where building multisport "cookie-cutter" stadiums was commonplace. Many consider Kauffman Stadium the finest ballpark built during the middle of the 20th century, and some say the stadium rivals many modern facilities as well. Although the stadium is only 34 years old, it is the eighth-oldest stadium in major-league baseball, as a result of the construction of a number of new stadiums in the 1990s, most of which replaced said "cookie-cutter" facilities. At this time, the stadium is currently undergoing a $250 million dollar renovation. The following is a list of current and former Major League Baseball stadiums. ...

Features

Kauffman Stadium was the sole baseball-only facility built in the majors between 1962 and 1991. Although it is a baseball-only facility, the architectural techniques used were similar to the cookie-cutter facilities of the day. It is basically the first third of a cookie-cutter stadium--that is, the seats behind the plate and along the baselines, with smaller bleacher sections (or "outfield plazas," as the Royals call them) in the outfield. [2] The upper deck is quite steep, though not as high as other parks built during this time. Year 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1991 (MCMXCI) was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will display the 1991 Gregorian calendar). ...


The sight lines are generally very good; the only seriously obstructed views are in the outfield plazas, where some seats are right in front of the foul poles. Many of the seats in the two view levels are almost as high as comparable seats in cookie-cutter stadiums, especially in the back rows. Most of the seats are on the first level, putting most of the fans very close to the action.


The original seats at Royals Stadium were actually red, orange and yellow. By 2000, all of the seats were replaced by blue seats, the lower section seating also getting cupholders.


The park's best-known feature is the fountain and waterfall display behind the right-field fence. At 322 feet, it is the largest publicly-funded fountain in the world. The fountains are on display before and after the game and in-between innings, while the waterfalls are constantly flowing.


When the stadium was originally built, Kansas City was the westernmost major league city other than those along the Pacific Coast (1,600 miles away), which was a major reason why the Royals initially decided to use a faster-draining AstroTurf surface. Kauffman didn't want fans who drove many hundreds of miles from across the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains to go home without seeing the game completed. The Truman Sports Complex's legendary groundskeeper, George Toma, best known as the head groundskeeper for every Super Bowl, thus had the ironic job of maintaining two carpets for most of his career, along with the surface of Arrowhead Stadium, which had AstroTurf from 1972 through 1993.

Arrowhead Stadium is a stadium located in Kansas City, Missouri, and home to the National Football Leagues Kansas City Chiefs. ...


The arrival of the Colorado Rockies, however, removed a significant portion of the Royals' once-vast home territory, and the turf was replaced by grass for the 1995 season. When the Royals ripped out the turf, they kept the old drainage system, and as a result their current grass field drains very well. Many newer facilities (and some older facilities through retrofitting) have similar drainage systems to minimize downtime after rain delays.

Planned renovations

On April 4, 2006, Jackson County voters approved a 3/8% sales tax increase to fund plans to renovate the Truman Sports Complex. The construction began with a ceremonial groundbreaking inside Kauffman Stadium on October 3rd, 2007, with completion of Kauffman Stadium in time for Opening Day in 2009, and full renovation of the complex (including nearby Arrowhead Stadium) by the year 2010, depending upon cost overruns. The team committed to a lease that will keep them in Kansas City until 2030, an extension of their current lease expiration of 2015.
