Town Teams: More than Baseball; New Kansas Documentary Premieres in Shawnee

The documentary, Town Teams: Bigger than Baseball, premiers Thursday night in Shawnee. Other showings are scheduled in Topeka, El Dorado and Wichita.

Major League Baseball is big business in our area, largely because of the success of the Kansas City Royals, the defending world champions. But a hundred years ago, "town team baseball" might have been even bigger. A new documentary called "Town Teams: Bigger than Baseball" premieres tonight (THUR) in Shawnee. The film explores the connection between Kansas communities and their hometown teams. KPR's J. Schafer recently spoke with Mark Honer (HOE-nur), the producer of the documentary.

That's Mark Honer, producer of the new documentary - "Town Teams: Bigger than Baseball." He was speaking with KPR's J. Schafer. "Town Teams" premieres tonight (THUR) at 7 o'clock at the Shawnee 18 Theatres. For more information, visit the Facebook page.

 Screenings will also be held in El Dorado on April 30, in Topeka on May 28, and in Wichita on July 5.
