Jack Graney Chapter SABR Day meeting (Cleveland, OH)

The Jack Graney Chapter will hold its SABR Day meeting (one week after the national SABR Day) from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., on Saturday, February 2, 2019, at the 4th-floor Terrace Club restaurant at Progressive Field, 2401 Ontario St, Cleveland, OH 44115.

The doors will be open at 9:15 am with the meeting starting at 9:30 am and ending at 3:30 pm. We will have a 90-minute lunch on your own break around 11:30 am.

Due to construction going on at Progressive Field we will not have the use of the players’ lot for parking so we will all be on our own. There is a Cavs’ game that night but it should not impact us. I will have a detailed agenda out next week.

Our featured speakers will be: 1) Kevin Tenenbaum, Indians’ Assistant Director for Baseball Research and Development; 2) Sheldon Ocker, 2018 winner of the J. G. Taylor Spink Award from the Baseball Hall of Fame.

We will also have talks from John Adams (yes, that John Adams), Professor Jim Albert of Bowling Green State University talking about the MLB study on the recent home run explosion and possible differences in baseball construction, and our very own Stephanie Liscio talking on her PhD dissertation “'If You Build It, Where Will They Go?' Sports Stadiums, Civic Pride, And Neighborhood Displacement, 1930-1970.”

The meeting will be free and open to all so feel free to invite anyone you think who would have an interest in attending.
