Royals hold groundbreaking ceremony for stadium renovation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The Kansas City Royals broke ground
today on a 250 million dollar renovation of Kauffman Stadium.
The renovation will include a new scoreboard, wider concourses
and a team hall of fame.
Owner David Glass, team president Dan Glass, and Royals legend
George Brett helped launch the renovation. They turned over shovels
of dirt near home plate while a few fans watched from the seats in
the lower bowl.
The renovation also features new restaurants and a plaza beyond
the famous outfield fountains. It will be financed mainly by a
sales tax approved by Jackson County voters last year.
The new high-definition scoreboard will be about four times
bigger than the current scoreboard, which has sat behind the center
field fence since the facility opened as Royals Stadium in 1973.
