Kansas City History–The Negro League Baseball Museum

Before there were the Kansas City Royals, there were the Kansas City Monarchs, the longest running franchise in the history of baseball’s Negro Leagues. The Kansas City Monarchs players included some you may have heard of, such as Buck O’Neill, Satchel Paige, and Jackie Robinson. Kansas City is also the home of the Negro League Baseball Museum, which is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Negro League Baseball in America.

Our synagogue held its annual dinner at the Negro League Baseball Museum, so I got to tour the museum, and although I later discovered that photos probably weren’t allowed, I did take some!

Oh look, it’s us.

I’m not sure the kids would be interested in this museum, so I’m glad I got to visit it without them!
