Wichita, KS:  2017 Air Capital Classic Check Presentations to Local Charities Begin with League 42 Donation of $28,000

League 42’s mission is to introduce baseball to the youth of Wichita who may not have had a chance to experience the game.  League 42, named in honor of the great Jackie Robinson, is a youth baseball league, comprised primarily of inner-city players, ages 5 – 14, many of whom have not had the opportunity to play baseball before. McAdams Park at 17th & Wabash (I-135 & 13th Street area) is home to the League. 

League 42 completed its fourth season on Friday, July 7 with 42 teams and 580 kids.   Between this year’s championship games, Air Capital Classic tournament director Roy Turner, presented a check for $28,000 to Bob Lutz, League 42 Executive Director.
