The Kansas City Royals club packed up trailers with equipment and personal gear at Kauffman Stadium, and shipped them off to Surprise, Arizona on Thursday January 31, 2019. The packout day in Kansas City, brought the start of spring training closer.

The sun came out Thursday in Kansas City. Temperatures climbed above the freezing mark. Snow that had fallen 24 hours earlier melted.

It could be a coincidence, but the improved weather came the same day the Royals packed up the first of two semi-trailer trucks and it left for the team’s spring-training home in Surprise, Ariz. You can see what that entailed in the video above from The Star’s John Sleezer.

Another sign of baseball’s imminent return came a short while later when the Royals announced their Cactus League radio schedule. Twenty games are set to be broadcast on KCSP (610 AM), but a pair of the games could be changed based on the fortunes of the Kansas State basketball team.
