Kauffman Stadium Dugouts Flood As Severe Storms Bring ‘Mucho Rain’ (Video)


The Kansas City Royals grounds crew has a lot of work to do.

Amid severe thunderstorms and a tornado warning that produced the beginnings of at least one funnel cloud, incredible amounts of rain hit Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium on Monday.

Royals All-Star catcher Salvador Perez posted a video to Instagram showing water rushing down the dugout steps into the hallway that leads to the Royals’ clubhouse.
