Royals open Kansas City Urban Youth Academy

KANSAS CITY — Two years ago, standing before the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum with a shovel and a hard hat, Dayton Moore had a grand vision for the youth of the greater Kansas City area. That vision called for a state-of-the-art baseball, softball and education facility situated in the historic 18th and Vine District. Roll the tape forward to Thursday, when Moore’s idea was realized with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that officially opened the Kansas City Urban Youth Academy.
