Kauffman Stadium is located in Kansas City, MO and is home to the Kansas City Royals.  This park was built in 1973 but underwent a renovation in 2009.   I chose this park as my number 4 on my MLB list because of the support they get from their fans and the technology within.   “The K” as most in Kansas City refer to it is known as the best home field in MLB because fans are always cheering for their KC Royals.  The stadium is one of the smallest stadiums in the MLB standing at 37,903 but it doesn’t show it with the cheering they get. During the renovation in 2009 they added the 3rd largest video board in the MLB called Crown Vision HD because it’s shaped like a big crown.   The fountains in the outfield are powered by 120 solar panels.
