BioProject Reaches Milestone With 1,600th Published Bio
SABR's Baseball Biography Project reached another milestone Wednesday with the publication of its 1,600th biography.
The BioProject, formed in 2002 and chaired by longtime SABR member Mark Armour, is an ongoing effort to produce comprehensive biographical articles on any person who ever played or managed in the major leagues, as well as other persons who touched baseball in a significant way. The primary goal is to enliven the people behind the statistical records that are so readily available.
The six bios posted Wednesday include a Hall of Famer, the son of a Hall of Famer, and a trainer:
- Doc Barrett, by Rory Costello
- Chick Bowen, by Stanley Dziurgot
- Roy Campanella, by Rick Swaine
- Paul O'Neill, by James Lincoln Ray
- Jimmy Sebring, by Robert Peyton Wiggins
- Ed Walsh Jr., by Stanley Dziurgot
