KANSAS CITY, Mo. - On Monday, A Kansas City mother said she is one step closer to getting strippers out of the Truman Sports Complex. 41 Action News found out who makes the final call when it comes to exotic dancers hanging out in the parking lot during a game.
Angela Lukenbill got some feedback from the Royals Monday morning about KC Chrome bringing a truck with strippers to the Chief's home opener Sunday.
While the parking lot at the Truman Sports Complex is owned by Jackson County, the Chiefs and the Royals have control over the space during games. Toby Cook, Vice President of the Communications for the Royals, said the Royals have no say so over what happens on the parking lot during a Chief's game.
But, Cook said if KC Chrome showed up in their truck to promote their business during a Royals event, they would most likely be turned away.
Cook says the Royals have a policy against businesses that overtly publicize a product or idea. Also, Cook says the images on the truck would not fall in line with their family friendly atmosphere.
"If it's a subject matter that we deem is going to be inappropriate for fans and if we have a concern that it would not live up to the family oriented aspect of a Major League Baseball game we reserve the right to do that," Cook said. "But we're not in the business generally of proactively reaching out to people and saying, ‘Don't come to Kauffman Stadium'."
We received no response from John Seredich, the owner of KC Chrome. We reached out to him for comment several times for this story.
