An Enduring Legacy
The name Kansas City Monarchs honors the legendary Negro League franchise that played from 1920 to 1965.
The Monarchs were one of the most successful baseball teams of all time, winning ten league pennants and two Negro League World Series championships in their history. The team featured numerous notable players over the years, including Hall of Famers Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Hilton Smith, Willard Brown, Ernie Banks, and Buck O’Neil.
Today’s Monarchs carry on the legacy of those that came before them while supporting the mission of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. A portion of all Monarchs proceeds are given back to the museum.
