Note: For those of you who purchased a Phillies game ticket from SABR, you will be able to redeem your game ticket at the registration desk using the chit system. If you do not care with whom you sit, you should turn your chit into your game ticket right away at the hotel. But if you want to sit with a friend, wait to turn in your chits at the registration desk at the same time, thereby getting tickets next to one another.
Vintage 1860s Base Ball Game on Saturday, August 3
- A game with rules from the 1860s will be played at 12th and Wharton Streets in South Philadelphia. SABR members Dennis Link and Jeff Watson will be playing for the Athletic Club. No fee, but transportation is on your own. The Route 23 bus from the Marriott at 12th and Market travels south on 12th Street and will get you to the game in about 12 minutes. The return trip goes north on 11th Street. The game can also be reached by using the Broad Street Subway and walking. See the Transportation Tips page at SABR.org for more details.
Be sure to come to the game hungry. Three blocks east of the game, at 9th and Wharton, is the cheesesteak capital of the world. At that corner are two of Philadelphia’s best cheesesteak shops, Pat’s and Geno’s. See the Connie Mack Chapter table near the Registration I Desk area on the 5th floor for more information.
