Not in Missouri anymore: Royals move legal home to Delaware
(AP Photo/Orlin Wagner, File)SAN FRANCISCO The Kansas City Royals have moved -- not actually, but legally. Kansas City Royals Baseball Corp., a Missouri corporation, had been a defendant in the suit, which was filed in 2014. That company filed a certificate of conversion with the Missouri secretary of state on Nov. 19 to convert to Kansas City Royals Baseball Club Inc., a Delaware corporation. Then the newly named corporation converted to Kansas City Royals Baseball Club LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The Royals have a Class A minor league team in WilmingtonCorporate laws are much more universal in Delaware, Royals spokesman Mike Swanson said.
