The Kansas City T-Bones, a Northern League baseball team, will pay homage to Kansas City’s original major league baseball franchise, the Kansas City A’s, on Aug. 8 when they play host to the second annual Kansas City A’s Reunion Night at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.
This event is presented by the Kansas City Baseball Historical Society. The KCBHS was formed in the fall of 2008 to promote the exchange of baseball history to all fans of Kansas City baseball.

So far, the list of former A’s players expected to attend includes Alex George, Bill Landis, Bill Fischer, Diego Segui, John O’Donoghue, Jay Hankins, Mike Hersnerger, Glen Cox, Don Buschhorn, George Toma, “Gentleman” Jim Gentile, Rollie Sheldon, Lew Krausse, Joe Grzenda, Billy Kirk, Jerry Lumpe, Chuck Dobson, Phil Roaf and Tom Harrison.
