KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- With the 2017 season over, the Royals are making some on-field changes not having anything to do with the roster.

The team's grounds crew is working to replace the field at Kauffman Stadium.

A Royals spokesman said this is the first time the entire field along with the drainage system is being replaced.

The work is expected to be completed in November.

The Royals open the 2018 season at Kauffman Stadium against the Chicago White Sox on March 29.
