The Royals have a detailed weather safety plan in place that is reviewed every season. Every usher at Kauffman Stadium is trained to move guests to safety at a moment's notice. In the event of severe weather near The K, guests will be instructed to move to safe areas by ushers, public address announcements and instructions on the CrownVision scoreboard. The Royals consider the safety of our guests first priority and monitor conditions continuously during all games and other events.
