Going Out To The Ballgame

With a record number of spring training games won, the Royals started the regular season in Chicago last week with two losses and a win.

On Monday's Up to Date, we’ll bring you coverage live from Kauffman Stadium, where the team will be preparing to play their home game opener against the Minnesota Twins.

We’ll also discuss the team’s varying ticket prices, hear what it’s like to be a Royals announcer and get the story behind Slugger, the Royals’ mascot.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
