|Help Build Buck's Hall
Buck says that the Education and Research Center is “more important to me than any Hall of Fame.” Incorporating the latest in interactive technology and state-of-the-art research equipment, the Center will allow visitors, students, researchers, and baseball fans to study every aspect of the Negro Leagues. Currently scheduled for completion in late 2007, the renovated Paseo YMCA at 18th Street and Paseo Boulevard in Kansas City will house more than 45,000 square feet of archives, educational areas, exhibits, conference facilities and administrative offices. In addition, the Center will be home to an innovative curriculum for students from around the country to use baseball to learn about math and science.
Through your kindness and generosity, the Thanks a Million Buck campaign will help make Buck's dream of a Hall of Education a reality. We have a very large overall goal of $15 million to pay for the renovation of the Paseo Y and construction of Buck's Education and Research Center
