In just over three weeks baseball is set to return to to Werner Park as the Kansas City Royals are scheduled to play the Omaha Storm Chasers in an exhibition game. In the wake of last week's blizzard, Chasers General Manager Martie Cordaro says they are busy clearing several feet of snow from in and around the stadium.
"In our parking lot we had snow anywhere from a foot to 4-5 feet, on the field we have snow upwards of 2-4 feet and in the concourse is upwards of 4-5 feet.
Cordaro says they have a lot of work to do as they try and prepare for the March 25 exhibition game, which had to be canceled last year due to weather.
"They're focused on getting the warning track cleared off and then they're going to start to remove the snow from the 98-thousand square feet of Kentucky bluegrass that we obviously can't see right now," Cordaro says. "It's probably not going to be very green when we start the season."
He says they have had more snow this year than the four previous years combined.
