Originally known as Royals Stadium, KC's Kaufmann Stadium is recognized throughout baseball as one of the game's most beautiful ballparks. The fountains behind the right field fences are the largest privately-built fountains anywhere. The stadium was renamed in honor of team owner Ewing M. Kauffman in July 1993 (he passed away a month later).
The field itself is symmetrical (330 in the corners, 387 in the alleys and 410 to dead center) with large foul areas. The park is hitter-friendly, particularly on the windier days in the Midwest. Kauffman Stadium allowed 1.65 home runs per game in 2009, which is solid for today's game.
ESPN ranks Kauffman Stadium #14 offensively. In 2010, Kauffman Stadium surrendered a total of 9.40 runs per game for both teams (9th highest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
