Live From The Royals Home Opener

Beth Lipoff
Steve Kraske speaks with Dr. Daniel Mack, Director of Analytics for the Royals, from inside the Diamond Club at Kauffman Stadium.

Kansas City has been waiting anxiously for baseball season to officially begin after an epic World Series run last year that left the Royals just short of the title. As fans waited outside the ballpark before the home opener, Up To Date was inside talking to the people behind the scenes at Kauffman Stadium.

If you want to learn more about the analysis of baseball statistics, Dr. Daniel Mack, Up To Date guest and Director of Analytics for the Royals will speak at 11 a.m. this Saturday as part of the Science Matters: Second Saturday Lectures at the Linda Hall Library.
