"What’s your KC Q" is a joint project of the Kansas City Public Library and The Kansas City Star. The purpose is to help Kansas Citians become more knowledgeable and informed citizens. Readers submit questions, the public votes on which questions to answer, and our team of librarians and reporters dig deep to uncover the answers. The project is powered by Hearken.
With the Chiefs hanging up their cleats until next fall, Kansas City sports fans turn their attention to the beginning of Royals spring training. As part of our ongoing What’s Your KC Q? collaboration with the Kansas City Star, we’re asking for your questions about Kansas City’s long history with America’s pastime. Your question may be selected for an in-depth response from KCPL staff. Here are a few images from our Missouri Valley Special Collections to inspire your curiosity.
