Bob Kendrick

Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM). Established in 1990, the NLBM is a privately funded museum in Kansas City, Mo., dedicated to preserving the history of Negro league baseball in America.

Kendrick, who earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Park University, is credited with helping to revitalize the museum’s fi­scal health during its fi­rst 20 years. Prior to his current role, he served as director and vice president of Marketing for the NLBM. He has also held top-level posts within other non-profitt organizations, like the National Sports Center for the Disabled.

He credits much of what he knows and loves about baseball to the late baseball legend Buck O’Neil, who played for and managed the Kansas City Monarchs and became the fi­rst African American coach of a Major League Baseball team. O’Neil also played a major role in establishing the NLBM.
