TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)--History came to life for area kids at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum travelling exhibit Sunday.

Kids from the Boys And Girls Club of Topeka and others lined up at Prairie Band Casino, to get autographs from former Royals Frank White and Willie Wilson and Topekan Gil Carter, who hit the longest home run on record.

The three also mentored the youth and shared experiences.

They shared with us the importance of remembering the history of negro league baseball.

The event was sponsored by the African American male leadership council.
