Royals-Indians on Aug. 31 moved to evening


MINNEAPOLIS -- If you were planning to be at Kauffman Stadium for an afternoon game on Sunday, Aug. 31, you'll have to adjust your schedule.

The game against Cleveland, originally scheduled for 1:10 p.m. CT, has been changed to 7:07 p.m. to accommodate a telecast by ESPN2. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m.

The Royals announced that the game will remain a Family FunDay Sunday with activities for kids. It's also KU Day and University of Kansas fans can purchase a special ticket package and receive a Crimson & Blue KC cap.

Another change from the printed schedule, previously announced, has the Yankees coming to Kauffman Stadium on Monday, Aug. 25, for a 6:10 p.m. CT makeup game. It was rained out on June 9.
