While flying over the Royals’ Kauffman Stadium en route, the news crew noticed the scoreboard in the seemingly empty stadium was in use.

Mario Kart on the big screen

The chopper’s camera zoomed in just in time to witness Mario cross the finish line in a game of Mario Kart on the big screen.


There was no followup on who was playing or how they got access to the MLB stadium scoreboard.

It’s too bad. That’s a move worthy of admiration.
