  1. Evenings at Ease series: The Kansas City Monarchs in Your Hometown

    August 14, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Formed in 1920, the Kansas City Monarchs revolutionized baseball: not only were they charter members of the Negro National League and the first professional team to use outdoor lighting, the Monarchs also sent more players to the major leagues than any other Negro League franchise. Author and historian Phil S. Dixon explores the exciting early barnstorming days of the Monarchs, highlights great players such as Wilber "Bullet" Rogan, Satchel Paige, and Jackie Robinson who wore the uniform, and connects the spirit of the Monarchs to the many Kansas communities in which they played. Since 1981, Dixon has been traveling the country, sharing this history of baseball, and has written eight books on Negro League baseball. In 1990, Dixon helped found the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, now a major attraction in Kansas City. Dixon is an engaging speaker who enjoys interacting with audiences. Young ball players and baseball fans of all ages, don't miss this fun and fascinating program!
