MUSCOTAH, Kan. (AP) — Residents of a small northeast Kansas town are planning to build a baseball museum inside an old water tower tank.
The project is planned in Muscotah, an Atchison County town of about 200 people that is looking for attention.
About 50 Muscotah residents and volunteers are working with the help of the Kansas Sampler Foundation to convert the water tower tank into a baseball and museum. The museum also would honor native son Joe Tinker, a shortstop for the Chicago Cubs when the team last won the World Series in 1908.
He’s the Tinker of the famous baseball poem “Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance.”
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the city’s old water tank will be made to look like a large baseball and will house the museum.
