Help Us Rank the Top Baseball Storylines of the SABR Era

In anticipation of SABR’s 40th anniversary in August, we’re compiling a list of the top 40 storylines in baseball during what we’re calling the SABR Era (1971-2011).

Over the last few weeks, we’ve solicited suggestions from SABR members and received more than one hundred responses — everything from “the introduction of the designated hitter” to “the steroids era” to “Roy Halladay’s 2010 postseason no-hitter.” We took the 16 most suggested ideas and now we want you to rank them. The final list will be revealed in conjunction with our 40th anniversary in August.
