The research involved with uncovering the colorful history of the Kitty League is a labor of love. Like an investigator, I enjoy finding interesting bits of information from microfilmed newspapers that no one knew existed. The story of this Class D league is very fascinating. I've been honored to meet the men who played in the league and their families. They've all been gracious to share their memories, scrapbooks, and photos with me.

I'm not a professional researcher, so all expenses related to my research trips come from my own pocket. Photocopies range from .10 to .25 each, so copying the box scores for every game in a single season can be very expensive. (Copying box scores is necessary to compile statistics for those seasons when none were compiled by the league.) Then of course there's gasoline, a necessity for many of my trips.

Jon Winters and his company, Winter Systems, has kindly donated web space for this site as well as my other baseball site, Indy Leagues Graveyard. Thank you, Jon!
