Back in 1932, Monroe earned national headlines in the sporting world when it hosted the Negro League World Series. As part of his series called "Louisiana Baseball Stories," Charlie Whinham discovers the former location of Casino Park where the Monroe Monarchs played the Pittsburgh Crawfords, and Satchel Paige was not the only Hall of Famer playing that day.
