Buck O’Neil was an icon on & off the field. He helped break down the barriers of segregation, changing our country & pastime forever. And, he was instrumental in making the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum a reality, one of my favorite places to go in KC
Local baseball/softball facility hosts exhibit to honor Negro Leagues Baseball
Today I’m tipping my hat to all the giants in the Negro Leagues, from Satchel Paige to Toni Stone and so many others. Their brave example, first set 100 years ago, changed America’s pastime for the better––opening it up for new generations of players and fans alike.
I am proud to join the #TipYourCap2020 campaign in honor of the centennial of the Negro Leagues and the talented men and women who played in them from 1920 through 1960. The Negro Leagues made baseball better and America better.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues. In honor of this milestone, I'm tipping my cap to honor those who played and helped build the foundation for the civil rights movement. #TipYourCap2020
