Kansas City, MO – The YMCA adjacent from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will be renovated in honor of Kansas City's most famous Negro Leagues baseball player Buck O'Neill, who is taking part in renovations. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places - it's where talks took place in 1914 leading to the creation of the first black baseball league in the United States.
