KANSAS CITY - The Missouri Highway Patrol managed traffic at Kauffman Stadium for the first time Friday night in an effort to prepare for the All-Star game.
Around 25 State Troopers joined Kansas City Missouri Police Officers to guide the nearly 40,000 fans in and out of Kauffman Stadium.
The two agencies will also work together for Saturday's game. During Sunday's game, the troopers will be on their own.
Fans said the traffic was heavier than other games, delaying some about 30 minutes.
Officers said it's expected to have a back-up when so many people are trying to get to the same place. For the most part, police said the trial run was a success.
