The Satchel Paige Home

Update:

City officials, community leaders and family members of baseball great Satchel Paige on Monday unveiled a long-sought development plan to save and renovate the late pitcher's former home in Kansas City.

The local group Pitch Perfect KC was chosen by the city to lead the redevelopment efforts for the fire-damaged, 2 1/2-story home in the city's historic Santa Fe neighborhood with plans to convert it into a "historic community asset.  Determination to find a viable reconstruction team and a financing source finally paid off this summer as Pitch Perfect KC received commitments from area charitable foundations and a $500,000 state grant to help pay for the project.  The group has partnered with the Kansas City Royals on the project.

Thank you all for your charitable donations.  Even though the goal was not meet,  SPE's goal of being co-owners in the property will be obtained.  There are still quite a few details that must be worked out.  The family of Satchel Paige and the Satchel Paige Foundation are so grateful for your support.   The campaign has ended. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  


*The Satchel Paige Foundation (SPF) was formed by his children to perpetuate his legacy through charitable activities including, but not limited to: granting scholarships for higher learning and providing mentors for scholarship recipients to selected low-income, underprivileged residents in Missouri and Kansas.
