The suites are named for the former York Negro League Team, the Colored Monarchs of the Diamond, and its star player, King Solomon "Sol" White. They replace five former first-base skyboxes and are part of the larger renovation project of the 1741 Club. 

The 1741 Club will feature a modern, restaurant-like decor, upgraded audiovisual elements and an "all-you-can-eat enhanced menu" and all-you-can drink beer and house wines, according to the Revs.
