SABR 52 will be distinct from its predecessors, as it will feature a Hall of Fame speaker lineup we know you’ll love — including Rod CarewTony OlivaBert Blyleven, and Jim Kaat — and will be the most accessible and social experience we’ve ever organized as we emphasize SABR’s ability to unite all of us in baseball fellowship. We’ll also hear from Twins President of Baseball Operations Derek Falvey, General Manager Thad Levine, former pitchers LaTroy Hawkins and Glen Perkins, and more.
