Next to Opening Day, this is the most rambuctious, energized and usually the loudest day of the season here at Kauffman Stadium (though the pitch of the cheers is a bit higher than normal). It’s FOX4 and the Royals School Day at ‘The K’ when the ballpark becomes the biggest classroom in the country – thousands of students from foul pole to foul pole.
Right now they are learning
about severe weather from the FOX4
Weather Team led by Mike Thompson. If today’s weather holds out – and it looks like it will – they will watch Zack Greinke go to the mound to take on the Cleveland Indians at 1:10pm.
So later this afternoon the country’s largest classroom will revert back to a ballpark sure to feature the highest pitched roar in support one of the best pitchers in the game.
Then tomorrow night…Girls Night Out and Hy-Vee Pepsi Fireworks Friday. ‘The K’ won’t lack for energy and sheer noise level.
