03D0CCD8-A352-41A7-8714-8CED67D888ADWhen baseball acts logically, whether it is in terms of stadium construction or strategy, the reasoning can be sound. But when baseball embraces a lack of logic and irrationality, it can be so much more fun.

Kauffman Stadium Scoreboards, 1995 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for March 26, 2018

IMG_2473

I know they have renovated Kauffman Stadium and it looks great now. I love that they still play in the same park that George Brett and Amos Otis and Frank White called home.

One thing I loved about the pre-renovation was all the green in the outfield. It looked like a rolling field that spilled just behind the outfield wall.

It was a true ballpark that felt like it almost was set in the middle of a Missouri field (even though I realize that it is right next to a highway.)

Glorious Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, 1995 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for February 21, 2018

IMG_2451Not all nostalgia in baseball comes from traditional old parks. Kauffman Stadium (formerly Royals Stadium) is one of the best places to see a ballgame. The great fountains in the outfield and the closeness to the field give this a unique feel. While other cities were making cookie cutter parks that are now torn down, Kauffman stands true.

I went there in 1995 when my friend P. J. was getting married in Kansas City. OF COURSE I used it as a way to have an excuse to see a Royals game!
