The Kansas City Royals confirmed Tuesday they plan to build a new baseball stadium.

Royals Chairman and CEO John Sherman penned a letter to Kansas City and fans saying the team is building a new ballpark district and are looking at options in downtown Kansas City or close to it.

So does mean that the Chiefs will have an even bigger parking lot now?

I get that Kauffman is way the hell out there from downtown, but didn’t the state of MO just pay hundreds of millions of dollars to renovate the K?

Yep. Pretty sure it’s the ownership group just being salty they don’t get to get in on the real estate development game since the parking lot is publicly owned.

If Sherman wants to build his own stadium, that’d be one thing. It’s going to use public funds though, and I don’t like it.

Definitely better to move it downtown. can’t get behind publicly funding it though.

I do like the stadium design.
