Kansas City Kauffman Stadium

Kauffman Stadium History
Kauffman Stadium is the home of the Kansas City Royals. Since July 2, 1993, the venue has been known as Kauffman Stadium in honor of the Royals' founding owner, Ewing Kauffman. The stadium is located on One Royal Way in Kansas City, Missouri. It seats up to 39,000 fans and has reached up to 40,625. On June 16, 2010, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig announced that Kauffman Stadium has been awarded the 2012 MLB All-Star game.
Kauffman Stadium was the last baseball-only park built in the majors (not counting temporary facilities) from 1966 to 1991. It was one of the few baseball-only facilities built in the majors during the heyday of the cookie-cutter stadium era, and is one of two such facilities (Dodger Stadium is the other) that is still active and was never converted to a multi-purpose stadium.
The park's best-known feature is the fountain and waterfall display (known as the Water Spectacular) behind the right-field fence. At 322 feet, it is the largest privately-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. Kauffman Stadium is truly a remarkable stadium.
