(610 Sports) -- Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, love him or hate him, has knocked one out of the park with his Barstool Fund, which was started to help small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic across America. To date, Barstool Fund has raised over $22.4 million and helped 109 businesses and counting, keep afloat. The most recent of those businesses is Kansas City's own Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Portnoy broke the news to NLBM President Bob Kendrick that the Negro League Baseball Museum will be supported through the Barstool Fund and later had a video chat with Kendrick, which was shared on Twitter.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is privately funded and depends on visitors and the generosity of those that donate to the museum, leaving the museum in a tough financial position due to the pandemic.

An application for help from the Barstool Fund was submitted by Kansas City native Chadd Peter, who has no association with the NLBM, other than city pride and an understanding of the museum's cultural significance.
