WHAT IS THE QUEENS BASEBALL CONVENTION? A mid-winter gathering of fans of baseball, held in Queens. Our design is a combination of “Fan Fest” meets “Comic Con”.
The spirit of the day is for the fans to get together, celebrate baseball in Queens, and to bring the kiddies and bring the wife.
In 2014 events ranged from appearances by Ron Darling and Ed Kranepool (including a free autograph session), several baseball related panels, trivia, the Dating Game, the Mazzy Awards, mascot appearances…and a whole lot more. In 2015, we were joined by Mookie Wilson, Wally Backman and Ed Charles. In 2016...well the blizzard forced us to cancel the event.
The Queens Baseball Convention will be held again on January 28, 2017 featuring appearances by Tim Teufel and Bobby Valentine.
We will have Panels such as
State of the Mets Hosted by Mark Healey
The Uniform Panel
The Bobby Valentine Panel Hosted by Matt Cerrone (followed by Bobby signing)
The Tim Teufel Panel Hosted by Michael Barron(followed by Tim Sigining)
The Tom Seaver Retrospective Panel Hosted by Greg Prince
More Panels to come.
There will be vendors, mascots, The presentations of the Gil Hodges Award, The Mazzy Awards, and much more.
