Community group is restoring O'Neil's home

KANSAS CITY -- A community group in the Santa Fe neighborhood of Kansas City is in the process of restoring the home of baseball legend Buck O'Neil.

The Kansas City Star newspaper highlighted the efforts of the group, Friends of Community Preservation, which is attempting to raise funds to restore O'Neil's former house. The home needs approximately $100,000 in maintenance.

O'Neil's former church owns the property, and once the renovations are complete, it will be made available for community use, either as a education center, a tourism location, a meetings space or something else.
