2017 Canadian Baseball History Symposium (St. Marys, ON)

The second annual Canadian Baseball History Symposium will be held on November 18-19th, 2017, in St. Marys, Ontario, home of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Join us for one and a half days of research presentations covering any and all aspects of Canada’s rich baseball history. Learn about 19th-century player Bob Addy and manager William Watkins, baseball and Canadian soldiers in World War I, baseball and entertainment, the completion of the Chatham Coloured All-Stars project, and much more. Participate in a pictorial history quiz based on images spanning the period 1871 to the present. Listen to two of Canada’s most respected baseball writers (Bill Humber and 2016 Jack Graney Award winner Larry Millson) discuss what defines being Canadian, and the consequences of that definition for historical research.

The event will be held at St. Marys Golf & Country Club, 769 Queen St. E. in St. Marys. Registration for the event is $60. To register, please send an e-transfer to mavrix@rogers.com, or a cheque made out to Andrew North to 398 Queen St. E., P.O. Box 3305, St. Marys, Ontario, N4X 0A6.
