The Kansas City T-Bones announced today that the game time for their July 31 game against Laredo has been changed to noon.
The change from the original 7:05 p.m. start is to help accommodate nearby MLS All-Star activities in the Village West area in Kansas City, Kan., a T-Bones spokesman said. It’s a way, also, for sports fans in the Kansas City area to enjoy both events in a centralized location, the spokesman added.
“For the sake of our greater community, moving our game time was the right thing to do,” said Adam Ehlert, T-Bones president. “We look forward to a thrilling full-day’s activities throughout Kansas City, Kan.”
“What a great day July 31 will be for Kansas City, Kan., and the entire Kansas City region,” said Bridgette Jobe, the executive director of the Kansas City, Kan., Convention and Visitors Bureau, Inc. “We will have national and international attention on our city, plus we will be treated to some of America’s greatest sports – baseball and soccer. I invite everyone to spend the day at Village West to enjoy some of the finest sports, shopping, dining and entertainment.”
The CommunityAmerica Ballpark gates will open at 10:30 a.m. for the noon start on July 31.
“We’re excited to help create a true doubleheader sports day for the fine folks of Kansas City, Kan.,” said T-Bones vice president and general manager, Chris Browne. “We invite all sports fans of Kansas City to come to our area, enjoy some daytime baseball, followed by a parade and various Fan Fest activities in Village West prior to the MLS All-Star game at Sporting Park.”
