For the 10th year, I am pleased to announce that the kind folks at Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory have offered to host the Pee Wee Reese SABR Chapter in their corporate suite at Louisville Slugger Field for a Bats game. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, 2019, when the Bats play the Scranton/WB RailRiders, the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. The Bats will play as the "Louisville Mashers," and there will be a Mashers Giveaway promotion that evening. Plus there will be pregame live music.
Because we only have 24 suite tickets, this event must be limited to SABR members, prospective members and one guest each. (We can bend this requirement if our numbers are low for the event, so email me to check this out as game day approaches.)
As in the past, the Pee Wee Reese Chapter will supply some food for the evening. The menu is still being determined.
In addition, a written mini-Trivia contest (10 questions) will take place, with some non-cash prizes. Silent auctions will be held. Plus, you can always count on some interesting guests to drop by to say hello.
Reservations for this event will be taken on a first come, first served basis. In the past, this very popular night has sold out, so please check your calendar and send me an RSVP reply to this email if you wish to attend. Please include the name of your guest, if applicable.
Many thanks to Anne Jewell and the staff at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory for continuing to be such great partners and friend to our SABR Chapter. They are the best!
