KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KAKE) - In an open letter to fans, the Kansas City Royals shared plans to leave Kauffman Stadium.

"We are excited to now share that we have several leading locations under close consideration," Royals President and CEO John Sherman. "Both in downtown Kansas City and close to it." 

Sherman said the new ballpark district is expected to cost two billion dollars and that they would use a mix of public and private investments. 

He also is committed to listening to the fans when it comes to a new ballpark. 

"We look forward to seeking input from the public over the coming months about our vision to best serve our residents and build on the momentum our city is experiencing," Sherman said.
