We are sending out a call for presentations and displays for the upcoming 2018 Southern Negro Baseball Conference to be held at Rickwood Field, Birmingham, Al. Oct 4-6, 2018.

This year’s conference topic will be the last Negro League Baseball World Series in 1948. It is our hope that many of the writers who contributed to the SABR book “Bittersweet Goodbye” will consider making a presentation. This will also be a great opportunity to actually be on the field where several of the games were played.

Presentations should be 20 to 30 minutes in length. We encourage power point presentations, but it is not a must.

Please refrain from quoting large quantities of statistics. Please send a short synopsis of your presentation to Clarence Watkins for our consideration.

We will select 6 presentations and 2 alternates. If selected you will be asked to provide a couple of images pertaining to your presentation for our conference program. We will also need a brief bio on you.

We are also seeking several vintage memorabilia collectors to display artifacts related to the topic and its teams.

Deadline for presentation submittals is August 31, 2018.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in October. Rev. Bill Greason will be our special guest for Lunch Saturday.
