SABR’s 19th Century Baseball Grave Marker Project is pleased to announce dedication ceremonies for their two latest installations, honoring Andy Leonard of early Cincinnati and Boston baseball fame and Hall of Famer James Francis “Pud” Galvin.
On Saturday, September 9 at New Calvary Cemetery in Mattapan, Massachusetts, join a band of 19th-century history buffs, baseball fans, and family members of one of baseball’s “First Boys of Summer,” Andy Leonard. A star left fielder of the undefeated Cincinnati Red Stockings, he subsequently joined Boston’s first league “dynasty” champions of the 1870s. Ireland’s National Baseball League crowns its seasonal best player with the Andy Leonard Most Valuable Player Award developed to honor this Irish-born athlete. Click here for complete details.
On Saturday, September 23, we celebrate the life of Hall of Famer Pud Galvin. Following the SABR Forbes Field Chapter meeting at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, interested guests will meet at Calvary Cemetery (718 Hazelwood Ave., Pittsburgh, PA) at 4:00 p.m. Galvin is the third grave marked by the SABR 19th Century Grave Baseball Marker Project. The dedication ceremony will feature a bio of Galvin, prepared by his biographer Chip Martin, as well as other baseball notables and members of the Galvin family.
With the help of donations from SABR members as well as a generous grant from Major League Baseball, the Project attempts to provide the honor these players were denied at the times of their deaths. Their first stone was laid in May 2016 at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn for James Whyte Davis, member and officer of the New York Knickerbockers.
For more information, contact Ralph Carhart at email@example.com.

Boston right fielder Mookie Betts leads a powerhouse lineup of defenders in the AL and Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado retains the NL's top spot in the SABR Defensive Index™ rankings for MLB games played through Sunday, August 27, 2017.
For the fifth consecutive season, the SABR Defensive Index will be used to help select the winners of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award® and Rawlings Platinum Glove Award™, presented by SABR. The SABR Defensive Index accounts for approximately 25 percent of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process that will be added to the votes from the managers and coaches. The final SDI results will be released following the conclusion of the 2017 season at SABR.org/SDI.
Betts's SDI of 20.1 is the highest in the game among all qualified defenders, ahead of Minnesota center fielder Byron Buxton (18.2). Los Angeles shortstop Andrelton Simmons (15.2), Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon (11.8), and Los Angeles catcher Martin Maldonado (11.8) round out the top five in the AL.
Arenado's SDI of 11.3 leads all fielders in the NL, followed by Chicago right fielder Jason Heyward (10.9) and San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt (10.7). Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt (9.7) and Milwaukee catcher Manny Piña (9.1) are close behind the leaders.
The updated SDI results were released last week by the Society for American Baseball Research. For more information, visit SABR.org/SDI.

Arizona Diamondbacks right fielder J.D. Martinez became the 18th player in major-league history — and the second so far this season, along with Scooter Gennett of the Cincinnati Reds — to hit four home runs in a single game on Monday, September 4. The only other year in which two MLB players each hit four homers in a game was back in 2002, when Mike Cameron and Shawn Green accomplished the feat.
Martinez also became the first MLB player since Joe Adcock in 1954 to hit four home runs off four different pitchers in a game. He hit a two-run homer off Los Angeles Dodgers starter Rich Hill in the fourth inning, then followed up with homers in the seventh (off Pedro Baez), eighth (off Josh Fields), and ninth innings (off Wilmer Font) to enter the record books. Martinez finished 4-for-5 with 4 HRs and 6 RBIs.
SABR keeps a comprehensive list of all known players to have hit four or more home runs in a single professional game, first published by founding member Bob McConnell in The Minor League Research Journal, Vol. 2 in 1997, updated in Going for the Fences: The Minor League Home Run Record Book (2009), and now maintained online.
