Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Gets Much Needed Relief From The Barstool Fund

Congratulations to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum on earning relief from The Barstool Fund. Founder Dave Portnoy surprised NLBM President Bob Kendrick with the news on Monday with this video on social media.
If you don't know, we launched a special edition Dugout Mug last fall to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues.

Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

The Negro League Baseball Museum is the world’s only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America. The Museum hosts numerous initiatives and programs to educate, enlighten, and inspire the public about a forgotten chapter of American history. 

In February, the Museum will kick off Negro Leagues 101, which coincides with the league's 101st anniversary. The national initiative is designed to educate the public including a series of women pioneers who played an integral part in the league, and a "Hall of Game" ceremony which includes former MLB players who displayed the same passion as those in the Negro Leagues.

"The NLBM becomes more meaningful with the news of what Major League Baseball did recently by acknowledging the Negro Leagues," NLBM President Bob Kendrick told MLB.com. "I think it becomes pertinent now that we help baseball fans understand the significance of the Negro Leagues by conveying these facts and figures."

To show your support for the NLBM you can donate or become a member.

The Barstool Fund was started to raise money for small businesses who were financially impacted due to COVID-19 and has raised over 25 million dollars, from over 180,000 supporters which have helped 127 businesses to date.
