Current Monarchs player/manager and two former Monarchs, Paul Talaski and Jason Kirkpatrick, are now official World Record Holders. These three players were part of the 52 players that played 62 hours 32 minutes and 59 seconds of baseball May 17th - 19th to help raise over $75,000 for the tornado victims of Joplin, Missouri.
On May 22, 2011, Joplin, Missouri, was hit by an EF5 tornado that stretched 1 mile wide and had winds in excess of 200 MPH. The tornado claimed the lives of 161 people that day and more than 1,100 were injured. Not to mention countless homes and businesses that were completely destroyed.
The Monarchs wish to express their deepest sympathy to the family of Jay Davis and the entire St. Louis Spikes organization. Our hearts are deeply saddened by the tragic news of his passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
In Memory of Jay Davis
