From 1903 - 1955 The K.I.T. League or "KITTY" League brought professional baseball to Western Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri. This minor league sent more players to the Majors than any other Class D league in history. Including Hall of Fame St. Louis Cardinals Albert "Red" Schoendienst and Edd Roush.
This documentary will take you on a journey through baseball history based in our region. Stories about when the spitball was a real thing, umpires pulling guns on hecklers, how Branch Ricky visited the teams and his brother would sign the first African American to play in the league.
Please join me for the first public showing of a historic documentary that I have been working on for the last 7 years.
