Royals suggest arrival time for doubleheader

KANSAS CITY -- The Royals made a suggestion for fans attending the first day-night doubleheader in Royals history on Sunday.

Fans attending the 7:10 p.m. CT game are encouraged to arrive at Kauffman Stadium no earlier than 5 p.m. After the ballpark is cleared of fans attending the first game at 1:10 p.m., the gates will re-open at 6 p.m.

There will be no Fun Run after the first game because the field must be prepped for the night game. However, the Outfield Experience will be open at no charge for all children during the afternoon game.
