Juan Marichal Chapter meeting recap – 8/7/2018

On Tuesday, August 7, 2018, SABR’s Juan Marichal Chapter of SABR held its monthly meeting with special guest, Mr. Orlando Diaz, President of the Dominican Summer League, a league where all 30 Major League clubs have a rookie team.

It was a very pleasant evening, talking about how the process of signing youngsters to play professional baseball has changed over the years, particularly about determining the age of the young players. We mentioned the names of several players and why they had those problems.
