The most recent Sunday Night Baseball broadcast at Kauffman Stadium was on June 16, 1996. That night, the Royals – playing in front of just 19,437 fans at their home ballpark – lost to the Baltimore Orioles 13-5 and coughed up eight runs in the eighth inning. Perhaps that embarrassing implosion is what screamed “stay away!” to ESPN’s producers.

That's nothing compared to the Chiefs streak of six years since hosting a Monday Night Football game (which will end Sept. 13).

This Sunday night, you should bring your TV outside as you set off fireworks.
