Dunsmore: Recap of San Diego SABR chapter meeting on Feb. 15, 2014

From Scott Dunsmore at Padres Public on February 19, 2014:

Last week, Padres Trail wrote a preview of the San Diego SABR Winter Meeting that took place on Saturday. Unfortunately, he was unable to make it, because he was busy on the Eastern seaboard getting flights canceled and driving between airports to try and make connections.

Lucky for you, I was able to go, as all San Diego SABR meetings are free to the general public.

It was held in the auditorium at the new Central Library downtown. I’ve been to the new library once before and visited the SABR collection off of the 8th floor reading room. If you haven’t been yet, I recommend it. It’s quite impressive. And is only going to get more impressive.

Mark Macrae told those in attendance a little history of Bill Weiss and the sheer volume of baseball publications and memorabilia he had collected over the course of his life. Macrae was a long-time friend of Weiss who was given control of Weiss’ collection a few years before Weiss died in 2011.
