Meet the Hoppers night & premier of “The Kitty League” @ Alhambra Theatre
May 29 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Take me out to the ballgame! Take me out with the crowd!

Come and meet our own Hoptown Hoppers at a FREE family tailgate party and movie premier!

Enjoy hot dogs, apple pie, cracker jacks, and more at a tailgate party on the corner of 6th and Main streets. Griffin’s Studio will be open with a baseball-themed activity, and take a picture with your face in a Hoppers carnival-style cutout. Move inside the historic Alhambra Theatre for the coach’s introductions of this year’s Hoppers team and for the PREMIER of “The KITTY League: Hometown Heroes,” a documentary film by Joshua Maxwell.
The K.I.T. League, nicknamed “The Kitty,” was a Class D minor baseball league that represented Kentucky, Illinois/Indiana, and Tennessee. Beginning in 1903 and running for nearly half a century, the league brought professional baseball to smaller towns like Hopkinsville. The Kitty League produced more major league talent than any other Class D league in the history of baseball.
This documentary will take you on a journey through baseball history in this region with stories about when the spitball was a real thing, when umpires pulled guns on hecklers, how Branch Ricky visited teams, and how his brother would sign the first African American to play in the Kitty League.
Maxwell, an independent documentary producer and author of The Kitty League: Images of Baseball, spent the last several years interviewing players, historians, and fans that lived in the time of Class D baseball to create this hour-long documentary.

Tailgate Party: 5:30-7pm
Hopper Introductions: 7-7:30pm
Premier of “The KITTY League: Hometown Heroes”: 7:30-8:30pm

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County, Pennyroyal Arts Council, and Hoptown Hoppers are honored to sponsor this year’s Meet the Hoppers Night.
For more information, contact the Museums of Hopkinsville at 270-887-4270, or learn more about the documentary on Facebook.
