2012 Emerald Guide editors seek research assistants, fact-checkers

(UPDATE 11/28: The editors are no longer accepting applications for volunteers. Thank you for your interest.)

The editors of SABR’s The Emerald Guide to Baseball 2012 are seeking two volunteers to serve as research assistants, fact-checkers and compilers for the annual book of record published by SABR. There is an immediate need for the volunteers and most of the work would be completed in December and the very beginning of January. If you are looking for a way to get involved in important research — with some coaching — and you are conscientious, contact Gary Gillette at baseballist@247baseball.com or Rod Nelson at rodericnelson@gmail.com.

The Emerald Guide to Baseball, edited by Gary Gillette and Pete Palmer with Rod Nelson and Ted Turocy, is the most comprehensive record of the previous baseball season.

Historically, the primary purpose of annual baseball guides has been the publication of the official league standings plus the official team and individual statistics for both Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball. Our new Emerald Guide follows faithfully in that tradition, containing the official batting, pitching, and fielding statistics for every team and every player in the Major Leagues plus extensive lists of league leaders.

SABR members can download a free copy of the 2011 Emerald Guide on the Research Resources page; non-members can download it for free here.

A softcover edition can be purchased from Lulu.com for $19.95.
