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.
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.
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.
