LONG BEACH — A GQ photo shoot, we can assure you, this is not. But in between all the groundbreaking research presentations, panel discussions, ballgames and Hall of Fame arguments at the bar, one of the most entertaining highlights of any SABR convention is to see which obscure team jerseys, hats and other apparel will make an appearance in the hotel or at the ballpark.
Longtime attendees may not feel like they’re at a real SABR convention until they see Dave Smith in a Brooklyn Dodgers jersey or Maxwell Kates in a Detroit Tigers hat.
We noticed quite a few teams from all levels and eras represented this year at SABR 41, from the Lake Elsinore Storm to the Philadelphia A’s to the Yomiuri Giants to the Dodgers and Angels.
Check out a photo gallery of some of our favorites from all week in Long Beach:
