Baseball Game Program for Kansas City Monarchs and Indianapolis Clowns

This program contains "interesting facts about Negro League Baseball," portraits of players (including three women), profiles of managers and owners, and "Baseball Banter" by Ed Hamman. In the 1950s, the Indianapolis Clowns and the Kansas City Monarchs emphasized showmanship and entertainment, which had long been elements in Negro League ball.
