    Schuckman: Liberty native making sure Kaufmann Stadium gets Royal treatment for World Series

    Wednesday, October 29 2014 5:32 PM EDT2014-10-29 21:32:19 GMT
    Liberty native Craig Barry tried to treat Wednesday like any other day at the ballpark. He simply went about his business of getting the pitcher's mound and the infield at Kaufmann Stadium ready for that night's game. “We're trying to do the same as the player's mentality as far as one game at a time,” said Barry, a member of the ground crew for the Kansas City Royals. “We try to treat it as any other game.” When it's Game 7 of the World Series, that's not so simple.
