Royals fans may have dreams of walk-off homers dancing in their heads on Christmas Eve, but Kauffman Stadium won’t be the best place for a game.

Like most of Kansas City, the playing field is expected to be snow-covered with temperatures in the teens.

Christmas Eve will mark 96 days until opening day, but Royals fans will have a chance to get their baseball fix because Bally Sports Kansas City plans to air five games from the 2022 season.

Here are the games that will be shown as part of the Royals marathon on Saturday.
