In recognition of legendary sports announcer and “Voice of the Kansas City Chiefs”, Bill Grigsby, the public dedication of a permanent life-size statue will take place Thursday, June 22 from 6-7pm at Pocket Park – Historic Downtown Parkville.
Hailed as the “Prince of Parkville” for his endless contributions to the community, the statue depicts Grigsby offering his quintessential reminder, “Have A Beauuutiful Life”.
Grigsby, who died at the age of 89 in 2011, enjoyed a 63-year career in sports broadcasting and owns the distinction of calling the play-by-play for both Super Bowl I and Super Bowl IV. He also broadcast for the Kansas City A’s, the Kansas Jayhawks, Professional Wrestling, Tennis, and Boxing.
Current Voice of the Chiefs, Mitch Holthus, will be the emcee for the ceremony!
Please join the community in honoring “Grigs” and his family for the decades of memories created in our community and beyond.
