South Plainfield resident Bob Golon may be our first speaker, speaking on the history of baseball, as detailed in his book No Minor Accomplishment, The Revival of New Jersey Baseball

New Jersey may lay claim to the birth of baseball in June 1846 when the game was first played in Hoboken’s Elysian Fields, but Garden State sports historians acknowledge its comeback in the state stems from Opening Day at Waterfront Park in 1994 when the Trenton Thunder took the field in an effort to revitalize the capitol city.

That second birth of baseball in New Jersey, which now boasts eight minor league and independent teams, is chronicled by author and assistant director of the Plainfield Public Library Bob Golon in No Minor Accomplishment: The Revival of New Jersey Professional Baseball.
