KANSAS CITY MONARCHS REBORN?!?

Not really. 

The reality . . . A Kansas City museum is entering the risky world for minor league baseball that often ends in financial ruin for owners.

Remember that not so long ago this team was EVICTED and booted out of a deal with the UG in The Dotte . . . Sadly, they didn't even get KC Tenants to vouch for them. 

And so . . .

WILL HISTORIC KANSAS CITY SOCIAL JUSTICE CONNECTION DRAW CROWDS TO WATCH LOW-RENT BASEBALL?!?!

To be fair, it's possible that a successful merch campaign alone could float the team. 

Accordingly, here's presser coverage stolen quoted from newspaper hacks . . .

New owners of the Kansas City T-Bones baseball club in Kansas City, Kansas, announced Thursday morning that the team will adopt the name of Kansas City’s storied Negro Leagues team beginning this season.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, which owns rights to the Monarchs name, has entered into a long-term licensing agreement with the T-Bones. Beginning Thursday, the minor league team will be known as the Kansas City Monarchs Baseball Club. Officials hope the rebranding will bring more attention to both to the museum and to the beleaguered ball club in western Wyandotte County.

Here's more hype coverage gleaned from a press kit that doesn't bother to ask any tough questions or note the teams' sketchy financial fortunes thus far . . . Read more:

This will be great until someone claims cultural appropriation.

Along with Biden being sworn into office this too is a stupid idea.

The Monarchs have much better looking uniforms, caps and jackets than the Royals.

but..but..blacks are only around 40% of baseball players..they should save the name in case KC ever gets a NBA team..NBA is around 98% black.

^^and yet he owns you both, as he is always on your mind. He's not looking for you. You're looking for him. Weird.

Meh. If Brandmeyer wants to virtue signal with a name change while he's yet ink a deal with Wyco to even stay in the park more power to him, it's his money...

it may be that people think differently about things after corona, and that might help the monarchs.

the willingness to spend several hundred dollars to go the royals versus under a hundred for the monarchs may be less.

the entertainment content is similar (i.e., only semi-serious) and the socializing dimension at a well-done monarchs stadium might be comparable.

OMG what a stupid idea

Do any TKC readers know anyone who's even been to the Negro Leagues Museum ? I guess it's like knowing someone who died of covid19. Or knowing a Black woman who's been raped by a White man.

Chock up another win for team BLM. Will the team have a quota on black players and coaches ?

T-Bones was an all inclusive name. Monarchs means kiss BLMs ass. F--k them and the Royals. If I want to be preached at I will go go church.

Did City Hall investigate shutting down the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and cutting taxpayer losses?
