Polly and I have several Schoolhouses schedule for Thursday afternoon, but with a little luck, I will find my way to the museum beforehand. I've already mapquested it and it's 2 miles from the Convention Center. Either a nice morning walk, or a short cab ride. I guess it's no surprise to anyone who has read this blog for awhile that this might be something I was interested in. Baseball - check. American History - check. Inspirational stories - check. Awesome vintage uniforms - check. Don't forget, the best nicknames in sports: Cool Papa Bell, Satchel Paige, Bunny Downs, Rats Henderson, Spoony Palm, Steelarm Davis, and King Tutt. They also had a kid who played once named Jackie Robinson.
We often try to get to Comerica Park in Detroit every year when they celebrate the Negro Leagues. Ironically, this year, it will be the weekend I am in Kansas City. The Detroit Stars, the local team that was a member of the Negro Leagues is always represented there. The Tigers offer many events and the team will don the replica jerseys of the Stars.
I love these old jerseys. This was the home jersey and the visiting jersey is pretty cool too.
I hope to take lots of picture of the museum AND Market. Later
