Sources exclusively tell NBC Action News the Royals could announce as soon as Monday they have sold the naming rights to Kauffman Stadium. Sources close to the Royals say the baseball team will announce Kauffman Stadium will include a corporate name. ..... Sources say according to the lease, half of the money will go to the Royals, half will go back to the Jackson County taxpayers to pay for stadium maintenance. Sources close to the Royals say the corporation is a bank but they would not confirm which one. However, it is worth noting that the chairman of the board of Arkansas based Arvest Bank is the son of the late Sam Walton of the Walmart family.

Jair Jurrjens salary won't pay itself you know It would be a bit redundant to have the Major League and AA stadiums with the same Bank. But welcome to Arvest Stadium in 2012!
