Originally called the Tighty Whities and created by Move Right KC Founder Tim Crough who earned a B.S. in Exercise Science from Kansas University where he coached Jayhawk athletes in the Strength and Conditioning Dept. He continued coaching with the Colorado Rockies organization before heading back home to KC to train and coach in the private sector. Tim is a highly qualified professional and a man of highest character.
After some reorganization of the Tidy Whities, coaching responsibilities were handed off to John Dunaway to allow time for Tim to focus on his business, but Tim continues to be a significant piece of this team. (And John has a lot more free time on his hands!!) John has over 20 years baseball coaching experience including High School Head Coach.
In order to scratch John's inner superhero geek, we agreed to change our name to The Batmen and go with a Batman uniform theme.
The Hollow is a glorious Wiffle Field located at 52nd and Wornall across from Loose Park. If you are ever in the area be sure to slow down and take a look. And if you are lucky, you might get to play there someday!
