Announcing the SABR Baseball Ballparks Project

By Mark Armour

The SABR Baseball Biography Project has been accepting/publishing “biographies” of Ballparks for a few years, and we have 39 of them on our website at

However, this thing just got real. As of today, Ballparks are its very own PROJECT — the Baseball Ballparks Project, our first official spin-off. For those of you who are already writing stories of ballparks, do not fret. All of the ballparks stories will be treated just like they have always been. You should notice nothing other than maybe more buzz on Facebook or something.

What has changed?

  • Scott will be beating the drum for this work instead of me. He will work with the Ballparks Committee and with the BioProject Committee. This should be a big improvement, since, truth be told, I have not promoted this much at all. I tend to focus on biographies.
  • Scott will be keeping track of all assignments.
  • It is possible that as this project evolves it will get more and more independent.

What has not changed?

So, brave new day. I hope this project takes off.
