Batter Up: The Story of Black Baseball in St. Louis

On July 4, 1941, the Kansas City Monarchs and the Chicago American Giants faced off at St. Louis’s Sportsman’s Park. Through the prism of this single game—one in which St. Louis didn’t have a team but still sold more than 25,000 tickets—Steve Pona, founder of the St. Louis Baseball Historical Society, will dig deep into the history of black baseball in St. Louis to present a sweeping view of the city through the lens of one of its most important industries.
