Arizona visitors just what Negro Leagues Museum is hoping for
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, hoping for a resurgent weekend, had to like the report from Glendale, Ariz., visitors Fred and Donna White. The 60-year-old Arizona Diamondback season ticket holders were in town for a conference, but expanded their visit to dive headlong into the All-Star baseball experience. They did not know there was a Negro Leagues museum, but a hotel clerk suggested it should be part of their tour.
So they came. They saw. And they were amazed."It's amazing what the Negro leagues meant," said Fred White. He and Donna loved the theater especially, and the charts showing all of the many teams over the years. Added Fred: "I didn't know that Jackie Robinson was a Kansas City Monarch."
