The Jackson County Sports Authority and the Royals reached an agreement on $11M in improvements to Kauffman Stadium, including new field box seats just 50 feet from home plate, according to Gromer Jeffers of the K.C. STAR. Other improvements, which the Royals want "completed for the start of the 1999 season" include public dugout-level suites, an air-conditioned underground club room, three new batting cages and improvements to both the home and visitors clubhouses. To finance the improvements, the Royals and the authority "agreed to delete 16 improvements for the future," including the scoreboard, press box and concession stands. The team is still "putting together a wish list of improvements that will cost" $70-80M (K.C. STAR, 5/15).
