"Monarchs Defeat Chicago Giants"

Monday, April 2nd saw the Monarchs taking on the Chicago American Giants in Houston in "the first exhibition game Monarchs first stringers have competed in" (4/6 Kansas City Call). It's unknown whether Jackie played in this game or not. Monarchs skipper Frank Duncan may have wanted players who hadn't played the day before in San Antonio to see their first game action of the spring. Monarchs hurlers Booker McDaniels and Jack Matchett shut down the American Giants.
