I’ve been a member of the Lefty O’Doul Chapter of SABR, Society for American Baseball Research, for a year now and this was the first function I’ve been able to attend. I mention this because I wish I’d attended all the functions this past year and I had this thought that, if you were exposed to the idea, you’d probably like to do the same thing.
Our day included a tour of AT&T Park, a video conference with the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, special guest speakers Henry Schulman, sport writer for the SF Chronicle and author Michael Duca, Chapter President, Marlene Vogelsang and SABR National Director, Paul Hirsch giving us lots of good timely information. It was a very good day in San Francisco!
So in recognition of “SABR Day in America 3″ this is an open invitation to anyone interested in finding out more about SABR to please check it out. You’ll meet some really great baseball fans and be able to talk baseball all you want without having to deal with eyes rolling back in the head indicating “oh boy, here we go again”. These guys get it! And so will you!
