Spring means baseball to fans of the sport, so what better time to present a program on the history of the Kansas City Monarchs baseball team? Author Phil Dixon is an expert on the subject, having written multiple books about baseball history and its individual players.
As part of his 108 city tour, Dixon will present a program at the Princeton Public Library May 17 at 6:30 on “The Monarchs, a Baseball Revolution.” He will share how these players lived and traveled and the sacrifices they made to play baseball during one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history.
Dixon is widely regarded for his expertise on baseball history. His contributions can be found on the backs of baseball cards, award winning books and nationally recognized documentaries. He is also a winner of the Casey Award and the Macmillian-SABR Award for his writing and research. Formerly employed by the Kansas City Royals, he is a co-founder and board member of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas.
