One half mile North. The Monroe Monarchs
played Negro League baseball in what was
known as Casino Park. Owned by local oil
and machine works businessman, Fred A.
Stovall, the Monarchs became champions
of the Negro Southern League in 1932 and
played in the Negro League World Series,
losing to the Pittsburgh Crawfords.
Despite their success, the Monarchs were
excluded from Negro League realignment
in 1933. During their short time though.
the Monarchs launched the Hall of Fame
careers of Hilton Smith and Willard Brown.
