SABR will have a booth at the 116th annual Baseball Winter Meetings, December 4-8, 2016, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

Stay tuned next week for SABR’s new book detailing the history of baseball’s Winter Meetings, Baseball’s Business: The Winter Meetings: 1901-1957 (Volume One), edited by Steve Weingarden and Bill Nowlin, and published by the SABR Digital Library!
All SABR members can download our Digital Library publications for free or get a 50% discount off the paperback edition. If you’re not a member, click here to join SABR.

Please consider joining SABR member Tyrone Brooks and the Baseball Industry Network at the annual Baseball Industry Network Baseball Winter Meetings Morning Meet-Up on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, from 8:00-10:00 a.m. at the Gaylord Hotel.
Come on out, grab a coffee and mingle with fellow members of the Baseball Industry Network. As in past years, representatives from various major-league and minor league organizations will also be in attendance to network and screen potential candidates for various openings (full-time, internships, etc.) If you are someone looking for that big break, definitely be sure to stop through.
There is no cost to attend the morning meet-up, but like in past years, Tyrone is asking attendees to make a small donation ($5-10) to attend.
For convenience and because space is limited, please click here to RSVP by Monday afternoon, December 5.
If you are with an organization and looking to screen potential job candidates, please e-mail email@example.com. We are also looking for some volunteers who can assist during the event. Follow the Baseball Industry Network on Twitter at @tbrooksBIN to get instant updates leading up to the event.
