Selig to be in KC for ‘major announcement’
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals have confirmed that baseball commissioner Bud Selig will be in town next Wednesday, perhaps to formally award the 2012 All-Star Game to Kansas City.
The Associated Press and other news outlets have reported that Kansas City will get the 2012 game as a reward for Jackson County residents passing a sales tax to pay for a $275 million renovation of Kauffman Stadium.
A Royals spokesman said Friday the commissioner would have a “major” announcement at the stadium, but declined to say what it was about. A call to Selig’s office was not immediately returned.
