SABR

Daniel Ginsburg

Daniel Ginsburg (1956-2009) was SABR's youngest founding member; he joined during the Society's organizational meeting on August 10, 1971, at age 15. His expertise was in 19th-century baseball and baseball's gambling scandals, which culminated in the publication of his 1995 book The Fix is In. He served as a SABR director from 2002-04 and helped to establish SABR's Donor Program. He began his baseball research at a young age and his work was mentioned by Lee Allen in his "Cooperstown Corner" column in The Sporting News. Throughout his life, he collected autographs of Hall of Famers and other stars. In the late 1990s, he donated that collection to the Elliot Museum in Stuart, Florida. Dan was a graduate of Northwestern University and made his professional mark in advertising and marketing, retiring as president of Draft Worldwide in the late 1990s. He became a part-owner of the Class AA Norwich Navigators and the majority owner of Champagne de Meric, the only American-owned winery in Champagne.
