KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Country Club Plaza has a new look to it, just four days ahead of Royals Opening Day on Monday afternoon.

The traditional Plaza Easter Bunnies have been decked out in Royals jerseys, complete with their names on the back. All nine bunnies wear No. 15, too, representing the 2015 season. Either that, or they must be big Alex Rios fans.

Additionally, 34 blue Royals flags line 47th Street between JC Nichols Parkway and Pennsylvania Avenue.

Kansas City will begin its American League title defense on Monday when it hosts the White Sox at 3 p.m.
