It starts out - "Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is taking place this week in Washington, D.C., with Salvador Perez representing the Royals.

But there’s another Kansas City tie: The first All-Star game was played in 1933, the same year the Washington (D.C.) Senators went to the World Series with a first baseman who was known around Kansas City, Missouri. His name was Joe Kuhel (pronounced “cool”).

During and after his major league career, Kuhel became well-known around Kansas City. Today he’s mostly forgotten — except to John Hager, who coaches and has been involved for more than 50 years with 3&2 baseball. Kuhel helped start the league in 1943 for kids up to 16."

Step up to the Plate CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
by posted 12/07/2015


 

THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN: 

IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED TO CONTINUE THE LEGACY

 

THE COMPLEX

For over 36 years, the fields, bleachers and concessions at the complex at Bannister Road and Blue River Road have served 1,000 baseball players and 75,000 spectators each and every summer. Because of generous support from individuals and local companies, 3&2 KCMO has never asked the general public for donations or grants. However, the time has come to revive the complex many have come to love. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the club relies on the player's fee to cover operating expenses from year to year. This capital campaign will help finance the much needed improvements at the complex.

 

 

THE IMPROVEMENTS

In order to maintain the great legacy of the 3&2 Baseball Club of Kansas City, improvements to both the playing fields and general grounds are needed. Some of these improvements include new bleachers, sprinkler systems, pitching mounds, grounds keeping equipment, additional lighting, concession stand and restroom renovations, fencing, scoreboards, parking lot repair, landscaping and other improvements.

 

THE MISSION

Our goal is to raise $750,000 over the next three years. We believe your charitable donation can help fund operations, continue to build upon the storied past and create a brighter future for youth baseball in Kansas City, Missouri.
