Kansas City’s Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Offers Unique History, Honors League Greats (Video)

A trip to Kansas City, Mo., shouldn’t end without a visit to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. The museum, founded in 1990, celebrates the rich history of African American baseball and boasts displays of hundreds of photos and artifacts dating from the late 1800s to the 1960s.

The museum also houses a mock baseball diamond that houses 10 life-size bronze statues of Negro Leagues greats. The group represented on the field are the first Negro Leaguers to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
