Negro Leagues Baseball Museum needs help from big-leaguers it honors each year – KansasCity.com

Major-league baseball players have been given a lot, thus they need to share. Every major-league baseball player who is honored at the Legacy Awards should make a donation to the museum, although that seldom has been the case. The players need to be reminded that the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is a nonprofit venture and runs on a tight budget.

The museum spends a mountain of cash flying in each award recipient and picking up his accommodations. If you’re honoring someone, you can’t ask him to use his own money to make it happen. Yet if anybody is recession-proof, it’s major-league baseball players.

Players who plan to attend this year’s event include Elvis Andrus, Texas Rangers; Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates; Brian Fuentes, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim; and Michael Bourn, Houston Astros.
