Bob Kendrick returns to Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

Officials at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum have undone what they’ve come to see was a mistake. Bob Kendrick was introduced as the museum’s next president on Thursday, after being passed over for the job in 2008.

Kendrick, the museum’s former marketing director, said he was thrilled to return to the “house that Buck built.” Kendrick was close to Buck O’Neil, the museum’s spiritual founder. O’Neil died in 2006, and some members of the museum board quit two years later, when the top job went to Greg Baker, a former assistant city manager. Baker resigned last fall.
