Friday is Buck O’Neil’s birthday

Tomorrow would have been Buck O’Neil‘s 98th birthday.

In honor of the true Kansas City legend, all 10 local First Watch breakfast spots are donating all — all — of Friday’s profits to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Pretty sweet deal.

Several old ballplayers will be signing autographs at the First Watches around the city. The NLBM knows who and where.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (1616 E. 18th St.) also has a day of events planned for Saturday, including $1 admission and free cupcakes!

It’s still a shame that we can’t get Buck in the Hall of Fame.
