A few weeks ago, H ventured up to Kansas City on his quest to visit all the baseball stadiums around the country. Kansas was a short flight, but not appealing enough for me to want to tag along.
The baseball stadium (and much of Kansas City) are actually in Missouri. The Chiefs’ football stadium was just across the parking lot & H wasn’t too impressed with the outside of the stadium.
Luckily, he walked up to the ticket counter and got a fabulous seat just a few rows up from the home team dugout.
Inside the stadium, there were interesting exhibits and a baseball Hall of Fame filled with history and remarkable players.
The crown topped video screen was one of the largest in the league and is flanked on both sides by waterfalls.
Hubby was impressed with the enthusiasm and excitement of the fans, including a rowdy crowd rendition of Friends In Low Places where everybody sings along in the 6th inning.
One of his favorite thing about exploring new parks is trying the local foods and drinks from the area. Along with some live music & mid-western BBQ, the stadium offered Chicago dogs.
The first baseman for the White Sox actually went to H’s high school back in Houston. He enjoyed visiting the stadium, even if he got a little rain shower.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Off to visit Mount Rainier again today!
