KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It almost felt nice enough for a ballgame Monday in Kansas City.
But the calendar says we’re still a few months away from first pitch on March 30
That didn’t stop the Kansas City Royals from announcing home game times for the upcoming season.
In April, May and September, the team will host 16 weeknight games at Kauffman Stadium that will start at 6:40 p.m.
All 12 Friday night home games, as well as weekday home games during the months of June, July and August, will start at 7:10 p.m.
The club is set to open the season at home at 3:20 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, against the Minnesota Twins.
A new wrinkle introduced for this season adjusts the balance of teams played, with each MLB club playing every other club at some point during the season.
The Royals will play three games against every other National League club. They’ll maintain recent history of playing four games against the St. Louis Cardinals.
