Magical Builders ASSISTED MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL AND THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS TO COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING PROJECTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE 2012 MLB ALL STAR GAME:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Independence Unit (Independence, MO) – Improvements to the newly named "Independence Unit" include new classrooms and new restrooms, an expanded kitchen, landscaping improvements, furniture and an improved HVAC system. The project will bring the facility, which was in critical need of improvements due to its previous physical limitations, into alignment with state requirements, making the Leslie Unit annually eligible for subsidies to provide school-aged child care and food subsidies from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. As a result of the improvements, total membership is expected to grow by 60% by 2015. 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, which serve nearly 8,000 youth members, ages 5 to 18, at five community-based sites and three youth baseball facilities located throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area.
  • Operation Breakthrough Renovation (Kansas City, MO) – Renovations to Operation Breakthrough daycare center to help improve its after-school and summer enrichment programs for low-income families by creating classroom environments to increase the children's ability to concentrate and learn. Renovations made to the facility's infrastructure included replacing ceiling, drywall, glass and windows, installing new walls and doors, painting and electrical work and sprinkler relocation. The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment.
  • Mulkey Square Park Field Renovation (Kansas City, MO) – Renovations to the baseball field in Mulkey Square Park, which is primarily used by the Guadalupe Center Youth Baseball program include the installation of a new irrigation system and scoreboard, infield and outfield maintenance, new infield skin, fencing construction and installation, backstops, dugouts and other improvements to the facility surrounding the field. Product donations by the Scotts Company contributed to the completion of this project.
  • Satchel Paige Stadium (Kansas City, MO) – Renovations included the installation of a new irrigation system and scoreboard, infield and outfield maintenance, fencing construction and installation, backstops, dugouts and other improvements to the general facility surrounding the field. The field will be used by local youth teams along with Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) baseball and softball players.
