Due to uncertainty over COVID-19, the 28th Annual NINE Spring Training Conference will be held virtually over three weekends:
March 5-6 / 12-13 / 19-20
The NINE Spring Training Conference is a multi-disciplinary academic conference, featuring presentations on a wide range of baseball topics, including history, analytics, law, media analysis, literature, architecture, cultural studies, rhetoric, and more. Please join us for this one-of-a-kind event, in the midst of Cactus League Spring Training.
Conference registration is $50.00 ($20.00 with a subscription to NINE Journal.)
Listen to the “Baseball by the Book” podcast, live from the 2020 NINE Conference. Host Justin McGuire is joined by baseball writers James Brunson, Jeremy Beer, and Ron Rapoport to discuss the history and lasting legacy of the Negro Leagues. The podcast was recorded during the conference’s leadoff session. For more on the 2020 NINE Spring Training Conference, click on the program link below.
