Today's featured list

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.

To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.

At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.

Further ideas on how you can participate can be found at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/get involved.

The Kansas City Cowboys' players participated in the American Association (AA) for two seasons from 1888 to 1889. A professional baseball team based in Kansas City, Missouri, the franchise initially used Association Park as their home field in 1888, then moved to Exposition Park for the 1889 season. Although the Cowboys completed their initial season in last place out of the league's eight teams, there were notable player achievements; on June 6, Henry Porter threw a no-hitter, and on June 13, Barkley hit for the cycle. The franchise's only future Hall of Fame player, "Slidin' Billy" Hamilton (pictured), began his career as a part-time outfielder in 1888, and was their starting right fielder in 1889. He is the franchise's all-time leader in runs scored, bases on balls, and stolen bases. With Bill Watkins as the team's manager in 1889, the team improved to seventh in the league. On November 15, 1889, the Cowboys submitted their resignation from the AA. (Full list...)

Marojejy National Park

Madagascar has three established World Heritage Sites, and seven sites that are listed as tentative and are under consideration by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee for elevation to official status. The World Heritage Sites are places of importance to cultural or natural heritage as described in the 1972 UNESCO World Heritage Convention. The first site in Madagascar, the Strict Nature Reserve of the Tsingy of Bemaraha, was inscribed on the list as a site of natural importance at the 14th Session of the World Heritage Committee, held in Banff, Canada in 1990. This was followed by the 2001 inscription of the Royal Hill of Ambohimanga, a historic village and royal palace compound of cultural importance featuring well-preserved 19th-century palaces and numerous other natural and architectural features of historic, political and spiritual significance to the Malagasy people. Most recently, in 2007 the natural site of the Rainforests of the Atsinanana was added to the list, comprising a cluster of six national parks distinguished by their highly endemic biodiversity (Marojejy National Park pictured).
