Royals announce 2019 Spring Training home game times

In conjunction with Surprise Stadium and the Texas Rangers, the Kansas City Royals today announced game times for its 2019 Spring Training home schedule. The first of 33 exhibition games is scheduled for February 23 vs. Texas Rangers at Surprise Stadium to begin Kansas City's 17th season in the Cactus League.  

Kansas City's schedule features 15 home games at Surprise Stadium and two as the visiting team vs. the Texas Rangers on March 11 and 24.

The Royals will host night games on March 5 vs. Arizona (7:05 p.m. CST), March 19 vs. the Chicago Cubs (8:05 p.m. CDT) and March 22 vs. San Francisco (8:05 p.m. CDT). With all daytime home games slated for 1:05 p.m. (MST), the first seven will begin at 2:05 p.m. CST. Following the switch to Daylight Savings on March 10, the five remaining daytime home games will begin at 3:05 p.m. CDT. 

The Royals will play every Cactus League team at least twice, with the exception of Oakland, who they will play once. The Royals will matchup with Texas four times, and three times each vs. Colorado, San Diego and San Francisco. There are also four split-squad dates, in which the Royals will field a pair of teams playing two games on February 26, March 8, March 11 and March 16.

The Royals will travel to Werner Park in Omaha, Neb. on March 25 to complete their exhibition schedule with a 6:05 p.m. CDT game vs. their Triple-A affiliate Omaha Storm Chasers. Kansas City's exhibition game in Omaha last spring was cancelled due to weather. This year's matchup will be the Royals' first exhibition game vs. Omaha since 2000, when the franchise was known as the "Golden Spikes." The Royals will open the regular season at Kauffman Stadium on March 28 vs. the Chicago White Sox.
