Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

Tonight, I've got baseball on the brain. This is not an unusual thing for me. However, tonight's thoughts are directed towards a baseball story that I didn't know much about before now.

In the May/June issue of the American Association of Museum's magazine Museum, one of the feature articles focused on the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. This museum ably deals with the history of the American Negro Leagues that existed for nearly 100 years.

Given that Major League Baseball dedicated a special event to Negro League players during the 2008 draft this week, it seems that the history of these leagues, which turned out some amazing players, will continue to be in the spotlight in the near future. And bravo for that!
