KANSAS CITY, Mo. —

A fundraising campaign is under way to create an education and research center named for Negro Leagues star Buck O'Neil.

Money already has been raised, but the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City plans to open the campaign officially on July 28. The center will be located in the same YMCA where black entrepreneur Rube Foster and a small group of other businessmen founded the Negro Leagues.

O'Neil died in October 2006 at 94. He was a two-time Negro Leagues batting champion and manager of the Kansas City Monarchs.
