Harvey Soolman

Harvey Soolman (1949-2018) was among SABR’s earliest members, joining the organization in 1972, one year after the founding He grew up in Brookline less than a mile from Braves Field, but alas, the Beehive and the Jury Box were slightly before his time. His dominant boyhood memory of the park was his shagging fly balls on Boston University’s rock-hard AstroTurf, where if you didn’t catch it there was a lot of chasing to do. He lived in Medford, Massachusetts, managing and occasionally playing in the Boston Park League. He wrote and produced a play, Ballplayer, about an old amateur athlete who just cannot give it up because playing baseball is what he has always done.
