them to the district championship. He also played point guard on the school's basketball team, but did not play baseball in high school because Rockhurst did not have a baseball program at the time. Cone played summer ball in the Ban Johnson League. At 16, he reported to an invitation-only tryout at Royals Stadium (Kauffman Stadium) and an open tryout for the St. Louis Cardinals. Upon graduation, he was drafted by his hometown Kansas City Royals in the third round of the 1981 Major League Baseball Draft. DATE OF BIRTH 1963-01-02 PLACE OF BIRTH Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri DATE OF DEATH In 1999, Benoit teamed with Dean Malenko once again and defeated Curt Hennig and Barry Windham to win the WCW World Tag Team Championship. This led to a reformation of the Four Horsemen with the tag team champions, Anderson, and Steve "Mongo" McMichael (Steve McMichael). The two hunted after the tag team championship for several months, feuding with teams like Raven (Scott Levy) and Perry Saturn or Billy Kidman and Rey Mysterio, Jr. After a falling out with Anderson and McMichael, Benoit and Malenko left the Horsemen; he won the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship (WWE United States Championship) before bringing together Malenko, Perry Saturn, and Shane Douglas to form "The Revolution (Revolution (professional wrestling))". The Revolution was a heel stable of younger wrestlers who felt slighted (both kayfabe and legitimate) by WCW management, believing they never gave them the chance to be stars, pushing (Push (professional wrestling)) older, more established wrestlers instead, despite their then-current questionable worthiness of their pushes. This led to the Revolution seceding from WCW, and forming their own nation, complete with a flag. This led to some friction being created between Benoit and leader, Douglas, who called into question Benoit's heart in the group, causing Benoit to quit the group, thus turning face, and having his own crusade against the top stars, winning the Television title one more time and the United States title from Jeff Jarrett in a ladder match. On May 1999 on ''Nitro'' in Kansas City, Missouri, Benoit wrestled Bret Hart as a tribute to Owen Hart, who had recently died due to an equipment malfunction (Over the Edge (1999)#Owen Hart accident). Hart defeated Benoit by submission, and the two received a standing ovation, and an embrace from guest ring announcer, Harley Race. thumb left Hannibal Bridge (Image:Hannibal-bridge.jpg) from 1908 postcard Octave Chanute was widely considered a brilliant and innovative railroad engineer. During his career he designed and constructed the United States' two biggest stock yards -- Chicago Stock Yards (Union Stock Yards) (1865) and Kansas City Stockyards (1871). He designed and built the Hannibal Bridge which was the first bridge to cross the Missouri River in Kansas City, Missouri in 1869. The bridge established Kansas City as the dominant city in the region. He designed many bridges during his railroad career, including the Illinois River rail bridge at Peoria (Peoria, Illinois), the Genesee River Gorge rail bridge near Portageville, New York, now Letchworth State Park, the bridges at Sibley, Missouri across the Missouri and at Fort Madison, Iowa across the Mississippi and the Kinzua Bridge in Pennsylvania.

By 1910, agriculture in the southern Great Plains had become nearly unviable due to soil erosion and poor rainfall. Much of the rural population of states such as Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas left at this time, selling their land and moving to Chicago (Chicago, Illinois), Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), Detroit (Detroit, Michigan), and fast-growing Los Angeles (Los Angeles, California). Those who remained experienced continuing deterioration of conditions, which reached their nadir during the drought that began in the late 1920s and created the infamous Dust Bowl. (Small cotton farmers in states such as Mississippi and Alabama suffered similar problems from the first major infestation of the boll weevil.) When the onset of the Great Depression created a national banking crisis, family farmers—usually heavily in debt—often had their mortgages foreclosed by banks desperate to shore up their balance sheets. In response, many farmers loaded their families and portable possessions into their automobiles and drove west. 150px (Image:Kcsky.jpg) Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri) is the largest city in Missouri, as well as the anchor city of the state's second largest metropolitan area (United States metropolitan area) (the Kansas City Metropolitan Area).

The '''National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Men's Basketball National Championship''' has been held annually since 1937 (1937 NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament) (with the exception of 1944 (1944 NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament)). The tournament was established by James Naismith to crown a national champion for smaller colleges and universities. The NAIA Tournament features only 32 teams, and the entire tournament is contested in one week instead of three weekends. Since 1992, the NAIA has sponsored a Division II championship. Also the entire tournament is played in one city (Kansas City, Missouri DI, and Point Lookout, Missouri DII).

'''Kansas City''' or '''K.C.''' is a city of 464,310 people and largest municipality in the U.S. (United States) state of Missouri. It is the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, a region spanning the Kansas–Missouri border. Founded in the 1830s as a port on the Missouri River and originally called Kansas, this became confusing upon the establishment of Kansas Territory in 1854, creating the name Kansas City to distinguish the two. Sitting on the western border of Missouri, with downtown (Downtown Kansas City) near the confluence of the Kansas (Kansas River) and Missouri Rivers, the modern city encompasses in parts of Jackson (Jackson County, Missouri), Clay (Clay County, Missouri), Cass (Cass County, Missouri), and Platte (Platte County, Missouri) counties. It is one of two county seats of Jackson County. The 18th and Vine Neighborhood (18th and Vine-Downtown East, Kansas City) gave birth to the musical styles of Kansas City jazz and Kansas City blues. It is also known for Kansas City-style barbecue. The area is infamous for the Border War that occurred during the American Civil War, including the Battle of Westport and Bleeding Kansas. Large suburbs include Independence (Independence, Missouri) and Lee's Summit (Lee's Summit, Missouri) in Missouri and Overland Park (Overland Park, Kansas), Olathe (Olathe, Kansas) and Kansas City (Kansas City, Kansas) in Kansas.
