Awesome news. I knew it had been awhile since the KC Royals had played an exhibition here, but until I read the release I didn't realize it had been almost 20 years (spring of 2000). Wow!

Incidentally, I went back and looked in the OWH archives to find out a little more about that game, and it's a little crazy that game only drew 3,900 fans to Rosenblatt and generated almost zero buzz -- though the Royals were the worst team in the American League at that time by that point and the Omaha team was floundering in their "Golden Spikes" era so the lack of buzz makes sense I guess. Maybe people had a feeling it would go the way it did, ending in a scoreless tie after 10 innings, and stayed away.

But with less than 4,000 fans in attendance it's no wonder they stopped doing it.

I remember when I was a kid, just about every year, K.C. would play Omaha a couple weeks or so after the season started. The major league players hated it, and in-season exhibitions are no longer allowed under the MLB collective bargaining agreement.
