The Dark Tower Wiki

The Kansas City Monarchs were a baseball team in the old Negro Leagues. They were the longest-running team in those leagues, operating from 1920 until 1965. They won ten league championships. Such notable names as Satchel Paige, Ernie Banks, and Jackie Robinson all played for the Monarchs at some point in their career.

Connection to the Dark Tower Series[]

The Monarchs appear in the version of Topeka that Roland's ka-tet travels through in Wizard and Glass. In this world, the Monarchs became the major league team in Kansas City instead of the Royals.
