Sweet Lou Johnson Lexington Chapter meeting recap – 10/14/2021

Hello Baseball Fans!

The Sweet Lou Johnson Lexington Chapter of SABR met virtually on Thursday, October 14, 2021. Chapter Manager Ginger Baker led a short discussion about members’ playoff predictions.

Our guest speaker all the way from South Carolina — see, there are advantages to virtual meetings! — was Dan Wallach, the Executive Director of the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Library.

He shared stories about Mr. Jackson. We also learned a lot about Ty Cobb; apparently he wasn’t the tyrant that we thought he was. Our members really enjoyed Mr Wallach’s presentation and we’re all grateful that he was able to join us. Some of us plan to visit the museum on our next trip to South Carolina. Members are encouraged to visit the museum’s website at shoelessjoejackson.org and consider joining Mr. Wallach’s podcast (of course, about baseball)!

Congratulations also to Dan Wallach, who won the Baseball Trivia Game! Members all contributed questions for this very challenging game.

Chapter Manager Ginger Baker invited members to submit contributions for our chapter newsletter. This is very exciting for our members — they can be published authors! Our Chapter newsletter is published three times a year (July, November, late March). Members are all invited to email short stories, baseball quotes, old photos … whatever they’d like to submit for inclusion in the November newsletter to Cindy at Lucinda.baker@kctcs.edu.
