The NINE Spring Training Conference is going virtual (complete with happy hour each
evening!). Due to the uncertainly of the Covid-19 situation, we are moving the 2021
conference online, to be held over three weekends in March. We will also be hosting virtual
“social” times each evening for attendees to catch up and talk all things baseball.
Call for Papers: The 28th Annual NINE Spring Training Conference invites original
unpublished papers that study all aspects of baseball, with particular emphasis on history,
literature, and social policy implications. Abstracts only, not to exceed 300 words, should be
submitted by December 4, 2020, to co-director Willie Steele (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the
abstract committee’s consideration.
Following the submission deadline, authors will be notified as quickly as possible whether
their papers have been accepted. Submission of an abstract indicates the presenter's intent to
register for and attend the conference. All authors are required to register for the conference and
present their work in person.
Call for Films: For the 28 th Annual NINE Spring Training Conference, we invite original films
on all aspects of baseball and baseball history. Complete films should be submitted by
December 4, 2020, to the film program committee of Lisa Alexander
(email@example.com) and Roberta Newman (firstname.lastname@example.org). Inquiries are
welcome, but only complete films will be considered.
Conference Registration: Conference registration is online at https://nineconference.com . You
can submit your registration form and pay registration fees online through this site.
Registration for all three weekends is $50 per person or $20 for subscribers to NINE: A
Journal of Baseball History and Culture.
