SABR Negro Leagues Conference in KC July 7,8,9

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.

Satchel Paige is the theme and his 100th birthday is July 7.

Unless you believe Double Duty, then Paige's 106th birthday is July 7th.

Hey, Mike,

Do you know if there's a list of presentations/topics available at this time?

What time of day are they? If I'm not working, I might definitely have to slide on down to the ol' Jazz district.

That's a tough time for me, because the SABR Convention is the previous weekend. But I'm tentatively planning to attend the conference in K.C. Maybe the Royals will even win a game while I'm in town...

Here is the Landmarks tour on Saturday, drawn up by author Phil Dixson.

Municipal Stadium lot, formerly home of the Kansas City Blues, Kansas City Monarchs, Kansas City Athletics and Kansas City Royals. The park opened in 1923 and closed in 1972. This is where Lou Gehrig played his last professional game (for you Yankee fans.)

Paseo YMCA (Home to the first Negro National League)

Kansas City Call office, (legendary newspaper)

Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and American Jazz Museum

Lincoln High School (School where Newt Allen and Frank Duncan attended)

Hurley McNair’s last home

Satchel Paige’s last home

Frank Duncan’s last home

Satchel Paige’s grave site

Satchel Paige field (home of the RBI League)

Satchel Paige school (middle school)

Newt Joseph’s home

Parade Park (where the Monarchs often took spring training)

Musicians Mutual Foundation (historic union of African-American musicians located in the Vine Street Historic District.

Neighborhood where Doby Moore was shot at 16th Euclid.

Newt Allen’s, Frank Duncan’s and Rube Currie’s Elementary School.

Just a question:

I'm from the KC area and I vaguely remember a 3rd grade field trip that visisted the site where the Monarchs games were played.
This was a while ago, mind you, but I believe the field where they played is still open. It's no longer a baseball field, but I don't remember any development over the site.

Can anyone confirm if the field is still there? because I might like to plan my own short little trip to visit it.

Isn't Municipal Stadium still a 'community garden'?

It was last year.

Neighborhood where Doby Moore was shot at 16th Euclid.

Nice! That's a building I think any man might enjoy going into.... Well, any man with enough drink in him---but not too much.

That Landmarks tour sounds awesome. I'll be sure to make it. The Legends Luncheon is usually pretty cool I hear and the Peachtree is insanely delicious.
