Eight years ago, I began researching the Kitty League, primarily going to the local newspapers on microfilm for information. A lot can be taken from them, but the players themselves hold the best memories of what it was like to play ball in the league.

I was fortunate enough to find a few players, all of whom were more than willing to discuss their glory days in the minor leagues. I thought it would be great to bring as many of them together as possible for a reunion to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Kitty League in 2003.

I've had the privilege of organizing two reunions and meeting the players whom I had only known in 50-year-old box scores and newspaper clippings. It was a lot of fun seeing these guys reminisce about the good ol' days of the Kitty League.
