Kansas City Monarchs
Thanks to the family-friendly atmosphere of the stadium and games that include plenty of action both on the field and between innings (Sumo wrestling or sky divers, anyone?), the Monarchs have become a beloved part of Kansas City’s sports scene.
Part of the American Association of Professional Baseball, the Monarchs (formerly the Kansas City T-Bones) have been in Kansas City, Kan. since 2003 and are one of 12 teams in the AA. The American Association is an integral part of baseball history, first formed in 1902 with the Kansas City Cowboys as one of the original members. The American Association was revived as the AA in 2005, and the Kansas City Monarchs joined in 2011.
Today, the Kansas City Monarchs are a favorite destination for baseball fans of all ages. Affordable tickets and free parking make for an unforgettable family outing that doesn’t break the bank. If you prefer a more flexible seating option than the ballpark stands, bring a blanket and grab a spot in the grass berm just beyond the outfield. Need a concession or bathroom break during the game? Legends Field was designed for full visibility throughout the venue, so you won’t miss a second of the action!
The ballpark also includes a kid-friendly concession stand and a children’s play area complete with inflatables, the perfect spot to run off excess energy between innings. Before you go, check the Monarchs schedule or the team’s Facebook page for promotional nights, which include giveaways, special events, and food/drink specials. If you’re headed there on a Saturday night, be sure to stick around for post-game fireworks! Make sure you follow them on social media to stay up to speed on all the Monarchs' latest news!
