The USA Today relaeased a slideshow of “MLB’s coolest ballpark features.” Missing from the list: The world’s largest privately funded fountain, located right here at the City of Fountain’s own Kauffman Stadium.
Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium features a fountain that stretches 322 feet horizontally, from left field to right field and has a 10 foot high waterfall that descends from an upper cascade pool that serves as a background for two water fountain pools. The fountains are on display before and after the game and in-between innings, while the waterfalls are constantly flowing.
Included on the list are: Fenway Park’s seats atop the Green Monster, the locomotive at Minute Maid Park, the swimming pool at Chase Field, McCovey Cove OUTSIDE AT&T Park, the Apple at Citi Field, Minnie and Paul light up display at Target Field, among others.
I’m sorry, but a 322 foot-long fountain beats almost every feature in the list.
Hey, Todd A. Buchanan,I hope to see you in KC for the All-Star game in July, then I look forward to your revised list!
