the History Alive!
Dear King & His Court Supporter,
The King & His Court are without a doubt America’s best untold story. An organization spanning more than 65 years, traveling and barnstorming the globe – numerous times and achieving records that will most likely never be met or beat in any sport, at any time.
To date the countless stories, experiences, memories and memorabilia from players, fans and those surrounding the King & His Courts globetrotting years have not been historically compiled, documented or preserved.
As the years pass, the experiences and memories from an ever aging generation continue to fade and are lost. The time to gather and historically preserve these memories, stories, experiences and memorabilia has reached a critical point.
To help fulfill the promise to our founder, the late Eddie Feigner, we have established the King & His Court Preservation Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt public charity to spearhead a global barnstorming campaign focused on gathering and historically documenting the stories, memories, experiences and memorabilia surrounding the more than 65 years of the King & His Court.
Our focus is to gather and document for historical preservation the records, stories and memorabilia from fans, spectators, past players, media and family members who personally experienced or who were impacted in some manner by the King & His Court and Eddie Feigner.
Our barnstorming campaign will last between 12 and 18 months. As we progress through the barnstorming campaign, and as we collect fan, past player and celebrity stories, pictures and memorabilia we will launch the process of historically recording all, which will include the development of a King & His Court historical book, created from the fans, past players and celebrity’s perspective.
Upon completion of the barnstorming campaign we will launch our mid-range plans, which involve establishing a King & His Court Museum in SE Washington State, where our founder, the late Eddie Feigner and the King & His Court started and finished. The museum will include much of the memorabilia, stories and keepsakes collected during the barnstorming tour. During the barnstorming tour we will seek the financial support from individuals, companies and foundations through general donations, sponsorships and grants as well as offering a select number the ability to purchase memory bricks and outfield fence pickets, which will be permanently displayed in the museum.
Our goal is to position the King & His Court Museum in close proximity to a sports (softball/baseball) complex to gain maximum exposure and also to lend in assisting the museum with the ability to host King & His Court/Eddie Feigner softball/baseball tournaments and youth pitching-hitting-catching clinics.
Our long-range plans include the production of a documentary. Through the guidance of our advisory board we will also pursue avenues for a movie or mini-series.
We welcome your involvement and support and look forward to seeing you as we barnstorm for history – one more time!
