Jim Chappell has accumulated a treasure trove of sports memorabilia that covers the walls of his restaurant. Dozens of sports personalities have talked of their lives and careers over dinner and drinks at Chappell’s. Now Chappell and co-writer Matt Fulks share the stories told by local professional and collegiate stars of football, baseball, basketball, and sports journalism.
Chappell is the owner of Chappell’s Restaurant & Sports Museum in North Kansas City. Fulks is a sports journalist, author, and broadcaster who works for Kansas City’s Metro Sports.
