Curt Flood (NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME LIBRARY)JULY 6, 2022 — Attendees at this summer’s SABR’s 50th annual convention — scheduled for August 17-21, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor hotel in Baltimore — will enjoy hearing a special panel discussion on Curt Flood. Fifty years ago, on June 19, 1972, the United States Supreme Court ruled against Flood in his effort to dismantle baseball’s reserve clause.

On Saturday, August 20, from 1:30-2:30 p.m., we’ll be joined by Judy Pace Flood, Curt Flood’s widow and a pioneering African American actress; Mark Armour, award-winning baseball historian and co-writer of the MLB Players Association’s official history; Brad Snyder, Georgetown University law professor and author of A Well-Paid Slave; and moderator Shakeia Taylor of the Chicago Tribune for a discussion of the Flood v. Kuhn case a half-century later.

The annual SABR convention, which is open to all baseball fans, includes top featured speakers from around the baseball world, innovative panel discussions, groundbreaking research presentations, ballgames, the SABR Trivia Contest, the Awards Luncheon, and most of all, the opportunity to make and renew baseball friendships over the course of this exciting and memorable event.
