The fourth annual Canadian Baseball History Conference will be held on November 9th and 10th at Museum London in London, Ont.

The event, which brings together baseball fans and researchers from across the country, is once again being organized by Andrew North, who is a long-time Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame volunteer and the co-founder of the Centre for Canadian Baseball Research.

This year’s conference will also include a bus trip to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in St. Marys, Ont., where attendees will have a chance to visit the newly expanded facility.

“We’re excited to share our new museum with such a hardcore group of baseball enthusiasts,” said Scott Crawford, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame’s director of operations. “Andrew and his wife, Elena, do such an excellent job of organizing this conference. I’ve been at every one of them and I’ve learned something new from each presentation.”
