KANSAS CITY, Mo. - An All-Star event at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum was a huge event Saturday, featuring a huge turnout for the Buck, Barbecue and Baseball Celebration.
The Negro Leagues Museum is honoring Buck O’Neil’s legacy and paying tribute to barbecue and baseball. Fans enjoyed music, toured the museum and learned about great Negro Leagues baseball players who made a difference in the game.
“Oh man it’s really buzzing,” museum president Bob Kendrick said. “The place has been hopping over the last two days and July is typically a busy month for us anyway.
“Add this element of the All-Star game and it takes it to another level.”
Fans also tasted some barbecue from seven competing barbecue teams. Money raised will go to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Children’s Literacy Foundation.
