The Royals’ spring training trip in March to play an exhibition against their Class AAA affiliate in Omaha, Neb., was postponed because of weather. The teams will try it again next season.
Times for the 2019 spring training schedule were released Thursday. The Royals’ opener is set for Feb. 23 against the Texas Rangers, their spring training complex partner in Surprise, Ariz.
The 33-game slate ends on March 25, when the Royals visit the Omaha Storm Chasers at Werner Park in suburban Papillion. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
The Royals haven’t matched up against their AAA team since 2000.
