Re: KC's Best BBQ

Went to KC for a daytime Royals game last week. Went to the newly rebuilt Gates on Highway 40, (the original burned down in a fire). Gates used to be one of my favorites but in my experience had slipped in the last 10 years. I will say I have never had a better brisket sandwich than what I got at Ga...

Re: 2018 Omaha Storm Chasers

Yeah I was shocked how reasonable to tickets were priced at. They are the same prices as the July 4 games. They went from $15-$25 (club seats). Don't know what berm went for. I was expecting another $10-15 per seat (and would have paid that).
