Ross Barnes memorial plaque dedication ceremony (Mt. Morris, NY)

SABR members David Stalker and Gary Passmonte are pleased to announce a monument dedication ceremony for 19th-century baseball legend Ross Barnes that will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 19, 2017, in Mount Morris, New York.

This will be at a small park in the village center. The Barnes memorial will be placed next to an old refurbished fountain and a memorial to Francis Bellamy, the author of the "Pledge of Allegiance."

SABR members and the public are invited to attend. Immediately following the dedication, a couple of vintage base ball teams from the Rochester, New York, area will play an exhibition. Hope to see you there.
