Kansas City Monarchs

Kansas City Monarchs of 1929

Playing manager Bullet Joe Rogan was past his prime as a pitcher, but still played centerfield and batted cleanup to lead his club to their fourth and final Negro National League pennant. Middle-infielders Newt Allen and Hallie Harding provided tight defense for a superb pitching staff. Ace Chet Brewer fashioned a career season, while Willian Bell and the Coopers, Andy and Army, gave Rogan an effective pitching staff. No World Series was held between the Monarchs and the American Negro League Champion Baltimore Black Sox.
