For those of you who either live in the Detroit area and/or are going to the SABR Jerry Malloy Conference in Motown next week, if you can, check out the dedication of an historical marker at Hamtramck Stadium, one of the few remaining venues in the country that actually hosted Negro Leagues games. Check out this link (it’s where the above photo came from):
While I’ll be going to the Malloy conference, my flight to Detroit doesn’t get in until after the ceremony Thursday, so I regretfully won’t be able to make it. However, I’m sure people will be taking pictures — and hopefully it will garner media coverage as well — so I’ll be sure to put up lots of photos and links from the event after it happens. Be there if you can!
