Eleven members of the SABR Rogers Hornsby Chapter met at Iron Works in Austin, Texas, for dinner on the evening of Thursday, September 20. We enjoyed great weather on the patio and far-ranging discussion of current baseball events.
Hot topics included the continued success of the Orioles, potential roster strategies for the one game wild card play-in game, playoff match-ups, the status of the Astros' managerial search, Ichiro's current adventures with the Yankees, and much more.
Jim Baker presented the quiz, "The 50 Years of Metiness", covering highlights over the fifty years of New York Mets' history. Jan Larson won the quiz with an outstanding 24 out of a possible 30 points. The quiz is here.
Our next chapter meeting will be our annual Playoffs Watch Party, to be held Saturday October 27 (which should be Game Three of the World Series). Jim Baker will host at his house. More information will be forthcoming.
Also, remember to mark your calendars for Saturday January 12, 2013 for our chapter's seventh annual Winter Meeting, to be held again at Texas State University in San Marcos.
