Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas addressed the media regarding John Sherman’s announcement:

“The Royals will be somewhere, I’m predicting, between the river,” Lucas said. “North of 31st Street, but let’s be even clearer, probably north of the train tracks that are about at 22nd Street. And then probably somewhere between the state line and of course, I would say Woodland (Avenue).”


But Lucas added that before it could happen, the city and team would need to have plans in place to handle the influx of traffic.

He also said it would be important to make sure surrounding neighborhoods and communities are not pushed out or negatively impacted.

“How do we make sure that we’re not destroying or changing a neighborhood to a negative extent,” Lucas said.

This seems to be a nice deal on a bunch of Pizza Hut food, if that’s something you need to eat. I enjoy pizza from the Hut, going back to the days of filling up my Book-It button over and over. So many free personal pan pizzas, for reading I was doing anyway!
