Bullet Rogan Monument

Bullet Rogan is one of the greatest baseball players ever, elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998. He pitched the Kansas City Monarchs to a Negro Leagues World Series title in 1924. Bullet's lifetime ERA is 2.65. He could hit, too; his lifetime batting average is .338.

Unfortunately, Bullet is buried in a non-descript, hard-to-locate gravesite in Kansas City. However, the cemetery owner has graciously granted an exception to their flat headstones-only rule so that a monument befitting Bullet's stature may be erected. The proposed design may be seen in the photos.

The monument itself will cost about $5,000. An additional $1,000 has been budgeted for any installation and incidental costs. Thus, the total fundraising goal is $6,000.

All donations will be made to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum to allow donors to claim a charitable deduction for tax purposes. Besides acting as a conduit for donated funds, the NLBM will also make a donation.

The project has been approved by Carl Rogan, Bullet's grandson, and other Rogan family members. Carl has also agreed to donate to the monument fund.
