LINCOLN — Ken Harvey's credentials suggested that he didn't belong in an independent baseball league, but that's where the former Husker All-American ended his playing career four years ago, having the time of his life.
The one-time Major League All-Star played portions of two seasons with the Kansas City T-Bones in 2008 and 2009. It was there that young guys, who'd either missed their break or never received it, looked at Harvey as their mentor. The vets, dreaming of reviving their careers, counseled him for tips, too.
