10 Things You May Not Have Known About The Kansas City Royals

10. Kauffman Stadium Has A Holding Cell

Tailgating is synonymous with live sporting events in the United States. While fun to imbibe and enjoy yourself both before and during a game, you also need to be mindful of what you are doing.

Kauffman Stadium is one of those ballparks that has a holding cell. This means that you can not only be arrested at a game, but also kept on-site until you're released or it's time to see a judge.

Kauffman has fountains running as part of its outfield decor, and more than one fan has jumped into them during a game. This can lead to a trespassing charge. As an aside, since police officers at Kauffman are uniformed, this means that officers have had to go into said fountains in full uniform to retrieve said trespassers.
