From the Kansas City Star:
When the Kansas City Royal’s Kauffman Stadium opens for the season this month, the facility will be more welcoming to fans with disabilities.
The Royals and architects worked closely with a special advisory group of disability advocates to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a law which didn’t exist when the stadium was first built. Among the changes:
- There are more than double the number of wheelchair seating spaces than before, even in suites.
- There are more family restrooms.
- Every concession area has counters low enough to accommodate people in wheelchairs.
