SABR Arizona Fall League Experience

We hope you'll join us for the 10th annual SABR Arizona Fall League Experience, which will be held Thursday, November 1 to Saturday, November 3, 2018.

The event will feature four AFL games showcasing baseball's top prospects. On Friday night, we'll come together for a special poolside taco bar dinner at our host hotel, The Saguaro, just steps away from Scottsdale Stadium and many Old Town Scottsdale attractions. On Saturday morning after our conference breakfast, attendees will join members of SABR's Hemond-Delhi Arizona Chapter for their regional fall meeting with research presentations and guest speakers. We'll conclude the conference with the nationally televised Fall Stars Game on Saturday evening at Surprise Stadium. All of this is included in one low registration price.
