Here we are at the Boog Powell International Airport outside of Baltimore waiting for a flight to Kansas City.
Today is the home opener for the Royals and they’re debuting a renovated Kauffman Stadium. So we’re expecting a bit of an issue getting into the park. But hopefully it won’t be too bad. The K is nothing fancy, but it’s a well-kept park and a nice place to watch a game. It’ll be interesting to see how the renovations have changed the place.
It’s a little weird this season as the Yankees will take part in four Opening Days. There was Opening Day in Baltimore on Monday, KC today, Tampa on Monday and Yankee Stadium next Thursday. But it’s not every day you get to see Gene Monahan and Steve Donohue introduced, so it’s all good.
The Yankees still haven’t revealed who will throw out the first pitch on Opening Day in the Bronx. I would think Lawrence Peter Berra and Edward Charles Ford will be involved somehow. How can you open the new Stadium without Yogi and the Chairman of the Board?
Anyway, they’re calling the flight. Check back later for the lineups from Kansas City.
