The Kansas City T-Bones Become the Kansas City Monarchs

By Precious Sanders @pdsanders99

In case you missed it, yesterday, the minor league team Kansas City T-Bones announced they have changed their name to the Kansas City Monarchs. The name change comes as part of a partnership with the Negro Leagues Museum (also located in Kansas City).

We’ve been waiting for weeks to let you in on a secret…

A brand that hasn’t had a home field since 1965, but on Opening Day of 2021, will take the field for the first time in those pinstripes as the Kansas City Monarchs. Home, at the Field of Legends, formerly T-Bones Stadium.
Where we belong. #ReignReborn #SeeYouAtTheBallpark

This is an exciting partnership between the newly-named Kansas City Monarchs Baseball Club and @NLBMuseumKC—and will help to continue sharing the rich history of the Negro Leagues.
Congratulations to the new @kscitymonarchs!#SeeYouAtTheBallpark
