The Major League Baseball team Kansas City Royals recently projected a game of Mario Kart 8 onto their absolutely gigantic electronic scoreboard at the Kauffman Stadium as part of a charity fundraising event by Royals Charities.
The moment was captured in all its splendour by a KCTV television station helicopter and shared on twitter as seen below.
we sent our helicopter out to get aerials of Arrowhead Stadium and on its way there it noticed a game of Mario Kart had broken out on the Crown Vision board at Kauffman Stadium?? 😂 pic.twitter.com/rOy0icieVi

The high definition scoreboard, known as the “Crown Vision”, is a 105 foot tall, and 85 foot wide HD LED display. Unsurprisingly, it is one of the biggest displays of its kind in the world.
The Kansas City Royals team used the game to raise support for the Royals Charities. According to reports, the staff members were competing in a tournament using the “Crown Vision” screen.
Plans are in place for a fundraising video game party at the Kauffman Stadium where fans can bid on a game of their choice to play on the big screen – pretty neat if you ask me.
