Traveling down I-35 to watch the Twins play the Royals at Kauffman Stadium is one of my favorite things to do. In 2013 the Twins were on their way to their third consecutive 90 loss season and the Royals were starting to surge toward what would turn out to be a run at the American League pennant.

The Twins visited Kansas City on April 19, 2014 to play the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. I was fortunate enough to be there on a nice spring day to catch the game and take some photos.
