CALLING ALL ROGUES, VOGUES, AND FANS!

























I am making a plea for material related to the Memphis Rogues. If you have any photos, stories, memorabilia, etc. related to the Rogues please consider contributing it to the blog. Please send me photo scans, stories, or comments so I can keep the Rogues memory alive. If you are or know any of the former Rogues' players, Vogues dancers, ballboys, ballgirls, front office staff, executives, owners, and players from the 1979 strike game against Detroit (most of them were local players) then PLEASE contact me at
gorogues@gmail.com. Your help is very welcomed and appreciated!
