Baseball Race and Integration Symposium

The Detroit Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) is hosting a big event this weekend. The Baseball Race and Integration Symposium will look at integration at the major league level.


The itinerary includes a bus tour of historic Detroit baseball sites on Saturday. On Sunday, there is a brunch and panel discussions at the Marriott hotel. Participants include Willie Horton, Gates Brown, Mickey Briggs, Don Lund, Jim Rile, and others.


The event is open to everyone and there is a raffle that is coinciding with the event. They are also still looking for sponsors so if you have a business and wish to sponsor the event, please let them know.
