The MLB All-Star Game is in Kauffman Stadium

The throngs gather at Kauffman Stadium for the biggest summer sporting event, but for many, it's more than just a game. On Up to Date, we look at how the game and the Royals have changed since 1973.  Hear "A Fan's Notes" with Victor Wishna. Then join the conversation as host Steve Kraske and KCUR sports reporter Greg Echlin draw a comparison between 1973 prospects—like George Brett and Frank White--and young Royals playing today.

Plus, what's on the menu at Kauffman stadium, and what does it take to pull off an event as big as the All-Star game? Find out when we talk with Erin Wishon, Toby Cook, and other guests who help to make the All-Star game an All-Star experience for the thousands of fans coming to Kauffman Stadium.
