League: Negro National League
History: Arguably the Negro Leagues' all-time greatest team, the Monarchs won five consecutive Negro National League championships during the 1920s. They went on to win six more titles between 1937 and 1950 as members of the Negro American League. Monarch greats included Satchel Paige, Buck O'Neil, and pitcher Hilton Smith. Jackie Robinson was on the 1945 squad when he was first scouted by Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
