Player Biography
A native Iowan, J.L. Wilkinson was the innovative creator and owner of the Kansas City Monarchs, the longest-running franchise in Negro National League history. His teams won an unprecedented 17 pennants as well as two Colored World Series. Wilkinson is credited with developing the first successful lighting system for night games – five years before Major League Baseball played its first night game in 1935. His Monarchs supplied the once-segregated major leagues with more players than any other black ballclub. Prior to the Monarchs, he owned one of the first all-girls barnstorming teams, as well as the multi-ethnic All-Nations squad.
