Royals new owner patiently awaiting rescheduled opening day

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The morning dawned bright and sunny over Kauffman Stadium, just to the east of downtown Kansas City. The outfield grass was a perfectly manicured ocean of green, the infield dirt brushed as if by a fine-toothed comb. In the air was a pervasive feeling of spring, of hope and opportunity and new beginnings.

All that was missing was the crack of a bat and the sound of leather hitting a mitt.
