All eyes are on Kansas City, Mo. with Wild Card and MNF games KANSAS CITY, MO. - Baseball is back. After a 28 year playoff drought, the Kansas City Royals will host the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card game on Tuesday, September 30th. While 21 of the 40 players aren't old enough to remember the Royal's last playoff game, Kaufman Broadcast certainly does. "I'll always remember the 1985 World Series fondly because it put us in the big leagues," said President Bill Kaufman. "We've grown considerably in 28 years, and it's fantastic to have another I-70 series". In 1985, live satellite game coverage was in its infancy. Kaufman, as a one man crew, brought ESPN and CBS's reporters from the ball field into viewer homes for all seven World Series games. Today, coverage is more expansive and in depth as Kaufman Broadcast is in full force on both sides of the state, armed with two satellite trucks and a host of crew members. So when you see Pedro Gomez reporting for ESPN, it's Kaufman Broadcast bringing it to you. While our commitment to excellence hasn't wavered since 1985, the rest of the world has changed a lot since then.
