Kansas City Royals vs. Baltimore Orioles Baseball Game
May 29, 2007,
Prior to the PDI, many members attended a Royals baseball game. Kauffman
Stadium's unique features include a 12-story high scoreboard and a 322-foot wide
water spectacular. The scoreboard contains 16,320 light bulbs, most of them on
the 40 by 60 foot screen. The water spectacular is the largest privately funded
fountain in the world. Added in 1990 was a state-of-the-art Sony JumboTron color
video display board installed on the left field hillside. Measuring 30 by 40
feet, it's one of the largest video boards in the U.S. The top of the board
features the Royals logo. In keeping with the architecture of the stadium, the
existing water spectacular featuring cascading water now extends to the left
Washington Chapter members watched their Orioles
beat the Royals 6-2.
