TicketCity's Kauffman Stadium Seating Recommendation
One of the draws of Kauffman Stadium is the fountain in the outfield. Seats in Outfield Box 104-106 are above the Royals bullpen and close enough to the fountain to enjoy, but beware as there are some obstructions the closer you get to center field. Seating down the third base line, in Field Plaza 214 for example, offers a full view of the field, in addition to the fountain and video board.

Royals vs. Indians
The Royals and Indians have been playing for decades, but the rivalry didn’t really gain traction until both became founding members of the AL Central in 1994. Since then these two teams have played almost 19 times a season, becoming all too familiar with each other. The Indians dominated the early days of the AL Central, and the Royals have been fighting to regain the success of the 1980’s. Look for the Royals to make that breakthrough in the next few years, and for this rivalry to really heat up.
Royals vs. Cardinals
Known as the I-70 series, this rivalry is a battle for the hearts of baseball fans in Missouri. These two teams met for the first time in the 1985 World Series and have played over 70 times since. With the inception of interleague play in 1997, this became an annual series, much to the delight of the fans. The Cardinals hold an edge in the series, but the Royals won the only World Series matchup between them.
