Despite threatening weather, Royals management expects Friday night’s game to be played. A sellout crowd for the game against the Orioles is expected.
Mike Swanson, vice president of communications and broadcasting, said heavy rain is anticipated in the area of Kauffman Stadium but forecasts are for the weather to break around the 7:10 p.m. CT game time.
The Royals also announced that the 400 Dri-Duck Fountain Seats for the game are sold out. The club began selling the seats at 2:50 p.m. CT instead of the usual 4 p.m. because of the threatening weather. All the $7 seats were sold within 25 minutes. A few scattered single reserved seats and $7 standing room remain available.
