Logos are being painted, temporary seating is going up and Kauffman Stadium is starting to be transformed into Major League Baseball's vision of an All-Star Game venue.

Crews were working feverishly Tuesday to prepare the home of the Kansas City Royals for the annual Midsummer Classic, and doing it under sweltering conditions -- temperatures were once again tickling triple digits. The All-Star Game is scheduled for July 10.

The stadium must be ready by this weekend, though, when the Futures Game and a celebrity softball game will be played. The Home Run Derby is Monday night.

Nearly every ticket for all three days has been sold, and Royals vice president Mike Swanson said 2,556 credentials have been issued, second only to the 2008 All-Star Game at the old Yankee Stadium.
