Facts

  • Officially named Royals Stadium on April 10, 1973.
  • Royals Stadium was inaugurated that same day with 39,464 fans for a 12-1 win over Texas.
  • Kauffman Stadium features a 322-foot wide water spectacular.
  • The water spectacular is the largest privately funded fountain in the world.
  • The facility was officially re-named in honor of Ewing M. Kauffman in a ceremony at the stadium on July 2, 1993.
  • On April 4, 2006, Jackson County, Missouri voters passed a three-eighths cent sales tax increase to renovate the Truman Sports Complex, thus killing this proposal.
  • In August 2008, one of the first elements of the renovated stadium, the Dimension X Design scoreboard was completed at a cost of $8.5 million.
  • The 105-foot tall, 85-foot wide DXD will be called "Crown Vision Board" to keep alive the tradition of the 35-year-old "low-tech" scoreboard that was state-of-the-art when it debuted.
  • The total renovation of Kauffman Stadium was completed on April 3, 2009, a week ahead of the Royals home opening game and a year ahead of the contract deadline for completion.
