KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kauffman Stadium isn’t the only baseball field in Kansas City getting attention.
On Tuesday, Mayor Sly James, Royals owner David Glass and Hall of Famer George Brett unveiled the newly renovated baseball field at Mulkey Square Park.
Improvements include a new infield, irrigation system, fencing and dugouts.
“It’s just one of those things that we could not have done without this game,” James said. “It is a great and fitting tribute to the quality and greatness of this city that we have the greatest game on earth here in Kansas City.”
These renovations will allow the Guadalupe Center Youth Baseball Program to expand and impact more than 400 youth in Kansas City.
