Kansas City Satchel Paige House Restoration Slap Fight Behind The Scenes

There is a $150K grant to spruce up this historic location . . . But it's likely that local power struggles and fighting will quickly waste the cash and cause another KCMO vacant home strikeout.

Family requests larger role in Satchel Paige House restoration project

Renovations have started on baseball legend Leroy "Satchel" Paige's former Kansas City residence in a historic preservation effort that includes city and neighborhood backing, historic preservation, and restoration grant. But Paige's family, who live in town, say they want to be included in the planning process and have co-ownership moving forward.

What about the house of the "Richest BLACK girl in History ", while her little house falls apart. IN that neighborhood, it will probably burn by the protesters pissed she was RICH and not a basic bitch.

Go ahead and be more involved. Start by funding the restoration......OH, that is not what you mean. Sorry.

Paige family just wants money. Where have they been for 20 years? They have had decades to buy the house, but now want to exploit the good work of others. Shameless and transparent.

That house in on East 12th Street and NOT in this neighborhood.

No. The family has a right to be heard especially if some shyster is trying to use the house for notoriety that would only come from using the Satchel Paige name. Without it, the hone really has no value beyond basic market value. Don't get grants using other peoples names that you have no right to! Shame on the asshole trying to monetize somebody else's legacy. It belongs to the family.

3:30 maybe they do a some interest, but read between the lines....they want money on Dad's name and say so in the restoration but haven't had any interest in doing anything about it until now
