The very newly created Detroit Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) is hosting a pretty big program this weekend. The Baseball Race and Integration Symposium is a two day event looking 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.

This is open to everyone – meaning you don’t have to be a SABR member to attend. Also, there is a raffle that is coinciding with the event. They are also still looking for sponsors so if you have a business (large or small) I’m sure they would love to hear from you.

For more information see the SABR Detroit website.

“This is open to everyone – meaning you have to be a SABR member to attend.”

Hey Bilfer, you may want to change that sentence.
