SABR 42: Houston chosen as 2014 convention site

The SABR Board of Directors has awarded the 2014 national convention to the Larry Dierker/Houston Chapter in Houston, Texas.

The 2014 convention will be SABR’s 44th annual gathering; the organization’s founding in Cooperstown in 1971 is counted as the first.

This will be SABR’s first national convention in Houston; the city was also a finalist to play host to the 2013 convention, which will be held in Philadelphia. The SABR convention returns to Texas for the first time since 1994, when SABR 24 was held in Arlington.
