The ballpark, which is also known as 'The K,' is the home ground of the Kansas City Royals. It is named after the founder and the first owner of the team Ewing Kauffman.

The Royals are celebrating their 51st season at Kauffman Stadium this year. The K has always been one of the crown jewel ballparks of MLB, hosting more than 86 million fans since 1973.

The ballpark has a capacity of nearly thirty-eight thousand. That makes it hard for the management team to manage the crowd and provide a safe environment.

To assure the health and safety of the guests, players, and staff, The K has some rules and policies that everyone must follow.

Bag Policy

Kauffman Stadium bag policy is a way of enhancing the security of the ballpark. All the bags are checked during entry.

To provide a secure environment and speed up entry into the ballpark, The K has prohibited the entry of certain bags. Only a few types of bags are stadium approved.

First, bags should be either clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag or have single compartments only. Any clear bags must not exceed the size 12" x 12" x 6".

Further, small clutch bags of size 9" x 5" or lower(with or without a handle or strap) are allowed. These bags can be accompanied by any one of the aforementioned clear bags.

However, exceptions are allowed in case of medical reasons or if you're with infants and young children carrying manufactured diaper bags. A proper inspection of the bags is conducted before allowing entry.

Fans can have their bags checked at designated stations at each gate.
