Longtime SABR member and major-league executive Roland Hemond will be honored before the Arizona Diamondbacks game against the San Diego Padres on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at Chase Field in Phoenix.
Hemond, who serves as a special assistant to Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall, was unanimously elected in January as the namesake of SABR's local chapter, now known as the Hemond-Delhi Arizona Chapter. Hemond will be presented with a plaque for his unwavering support of SABR over the years. Outgoing chapter president Rodney Johnson, a Diamondbacks official scorer who helped organize the 1999 SABR Convention in Phoenix, will also be recognized prior to the game during an on-field ceremony beginning at 6:20 p.m.
Any SABR members in Arizona who wish to attend the game should RSVP to chapter president Barry Bloom for details on a group ticket block.
