i would like to also throw into the mix an idea i had regarding kauffman stadium. if we did take a ball park downtown i would say lets strip kauffman stadium of all but the concrete, the chairs the big screen the fountains and lighting, and move it to its new home downtown. there are plenty of ideas for where and what a ballpark should look like but not many that consider what to do with kauffman, so I'm thinking why not turn it into a sweet outdoor performance venue? with american royal headed there now, i can imagine having artists or performers up on a stage where the fountains are now, think about the jonas brothers concert in arrowhead. with standing room on what is now the field and expanding the stadium seating back to its original number, we could be talking capacity near 50,000. plus the room along the outfield for pyro or a big screen or performer tailored effect.
