From Gillham Park to Rosedale, Kansas City’s Baseball For Bungholes League Is A Big Hit

All Photos by: Jonathan Hanson Photography

If you’re well past your ball player prime, but still like to drink beer and run around a baseball field, the Baseball For Bungholes group on facebook is calling your name. As some of our readers know, I am a big baseball fan. I have to send endless thanks to Shane Rizzo, Paul Snyder and Jeff Stivers for inviting me and so many other old, washed-up baseball players out to Gillham Park over the summer, and even into the fall now, for what is probably Kansas City’s best pick-up baseball league. After coaching in the spring through Kansas City’s RBI chapter, I didn’t want to leave the field. A friend quickly put the bug in my ear about Baseball For Bungholes, and I started coming out to games in the later part of the summer. It’s been an absolute blast.

Kansas City-based photographer, Jonathan Hanson, recently sent us an email link with a batch of some of his best photos from the games. Gillham Park and Rosedale Park’s baseball fields are the dual “headquarters” for the Baseball For Bungholes league. If you’re interested in playing, there is a game Friday night at Rosedale Park (weather permitting). We urge everyone to join Baseball For Bungholes on facebook, first. It will be difficult to get games in through the winter, but apparently games will be played as long as the weather is around 55 degrees.

Here are Jonathan Hanson’s best photos from Gillham and Rosedale:
