Padres’ Memorable Moments: A recap of San Diego SABR chapter meeting

A recap of the San Diego SABR Chapter meeting from on August 13, 2013:

Friday night the Ted Williams (San Diego) Chapter of SABR hosted the Padres Memorable Moments event at the Scripps Ranch Library.  As you may remember from reading about it here and here, Bob Chandler was to call the memorable moments in the old-style of sound effects and ticker tape.
