KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Royals fans looking to get a head start on the March 30 home opener will have the chance just a day earlier.

The team announced Friday it will open up Kauffman Stadium to the public for fans to watch players complete their final workout before taking on the Minnesota Twins in the season opener.

The Royals Workout Day will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29. Though the event is free, a ticket is still required to get into the stadium.

Fans can get their tickets online. Parking will be free for the event.

Tickets are also still available for Opening Day when the Royals and Twins start the 2023 season at 3:10 p.m.

The KSHB 41 Weather team grabbed the latest eight to 14-day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center, which shows temperatures nearing normal for late March.
