2004 Jerry Malloy/Negro Leagues Conference in Cleveland The 2004 Jerry Malloy/Negro Leagues Committee Conference, July 22 – 24, will bring together many of the leading researchers in the field of Negro League baseball history. The conference, held at the Radisson Hotel at Gateway in downtown Cleveland (216-377-9000), begins on Thursday, July 22 and formally ends on Saturday, July 24 with optional events on Sunday, July 25.

Call for Presentations – The Baseball Heritage Museum, host of the Jerry Malloy Conference is inviting research-based oral presentations at the conference.

Ted Williams Weekend at the Hall of Fame The Ted Williams weekend is scheduled to be held September 11-12 at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in New York. Bill Nowlin, in collaboration with Bruce Markusen, Manager of Program Presentations of the Hall of Fame, will be coordinating the event.

Call for Presentations – The coordinators of the event are looking for presentations in a number of media ranging from the presentation of papers to the showing of film footage of Ted Williams in action. Papers that are presented will be considered for a probably post-weekend publication. Still in the planning stages, the input of SABR members will help shape the weekend so Bill Nowlin says to “think big” and maybe come up with an inspired idea or two, or to “think small” and suggest a defined topic on which you might like to write. For more information contact Bill Nowlin at billn@rounder.com or call 617-492-3799.
