The UK Chapter of SABR largely devotes itself to researching the history of baseball in Britain. It's a rich and fascinating history that's yet to be fully uncovered, though our members have succeeding in unearthing some fascinating facts about the development of the sport in this country, and also about the origins of the game itself.

Of course, we also concern ourselves with all sorts of other baseball-related topics. Members of the UK chapter of SABR, scattered all over the country, have a wide variety of interests, from researching the history of the game to the study of its statistics and most things in between. In other words, if it has to do with baseball, we'll be interested.

On our website, listed above, you'll find a large collection of articles from our house publication, the SABR UK Examiner; a couple of potted histories (one on Early Bat and Ball Games, the other on baseball in Britain), and a hand-picked collection of baseball links. If you're interested in joining us, contact a chapter leader below.

SABR chapter meetings are open to all baseball fans. For details on the next chapter meeting, visit
