SABR 41: Top Tweets From Long Beach

LONG BEACH — As part of our ongoing coverage from SABR 41 last week in Long Beach, we set up a Twitter widget on the home page by which convention attendees could post live updates from every presentation, panel and ballgame.

Here are some of the top tweets from SABR 41:

  • @aarongleeman: Final verdict on #SABR41  in California: Any of y’all who don’t come to #SABR42 in Minnesota next year ought to be ashamed of yourself.

  • @crzblue: Impromptu session outside the corridor when #SABR41 attendees stopped Wes Parker to chat. He still talking ! Have some in video @Dodgers
