November 30, 2006

compiling box scores for the 1922
season, which to my knowledge has no final or complete
statistics. It should take six to eight months to finish this project.

complete history of the Kitty League based on research
taken from period newspapers, baseball publications, and
most importantly the memories of the players and fans who
