9th Annual Jerry Malloy Conference
The SABR Negro Leagues Committee presents the 9th Annual Jerry Malloy Conference July 7, 8 and 9 in Kansas City. Satchel Paige is the theme and his 100th birthday is July 7.
If you are busy the week of the SABR convention in Seattle, or maybe your funds would get you to Kansas City, but not all the way to the Pacific Northwest, please check out the link above for what should be an exciting conference. Hotel rooms at the Hyatt Regency are only $79 per night.
Minnie Minoso, Buck O’Neil, former NY Giant Daryl Spencer are among the players expected to attend.
A Who’s Who of Negro League authors and researchers will be in attendance, including at least four of the voting members of the Special Committee that elected the newest members of the Baseball Hall of Fame this year.
If you would like to attend the Saturday night game, but aren’t able to attend the whole convention, there are $15 seats available in section 127 - lower level, third base side. Contact me if you want to go to the game with the group. It would be great if some of the BTF guys from Kansas City could meet up.
A continuing education course for teachers will be offered, with credit through Pittsburg State University, on Friday. If you happen to know a teacher that would rather pick up credit for going to presentations about baseball rather than another course on how power point can be used in the class room, tip them off to this opportunity.
You do not have to be a SABR member to attend the conference or the game.
