Negro Leagues Hall of FameThe Negro Leagues Hall of Fame is in trouble. Faced with the dwindling economy, the museum is facing the very real threat that they may have to close their doors. Located in Kansas City, the Hall opened its doors in 1990, and for the last 20 years has continued to teach thousands of baseball fans about the injustices in the history of the game for decades.

Thanks for everything, CompUSA….we’ll miss you!
