SABR Negro League Committee Newsletter
The September edition of the Courier includes a summary and review of the July 15-17 Jerry Malloy Negro League Conference, held in Birmingham. Larry Lester, Conference Chair, as well as numerous conference attendees, have some very nice things to say about Rickwood Field and Birmingham.
The Friends of Rickwood appreciate greatly these kind words, and are proud to have played a small role in the over-all success of the Jerry Malloy Conference.
Bill Chapman’s photo exhibition, “Rickwood Field: The Color of Baseball,” hosted by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, receives a nice plug in the newsletter, as does Clarence Watkins’ Baseball in Birmingham and Allan Barra’s Rickwood Field: A Century in America’s Oldest Baseball Park.
