This magnificent 2.5-mile guided walking tour of baseball sites in the Downtown Loop will depart from the Palmer House Hilton hotel at 1:00 p.m. and last approximately two hours. A map and handout will be available at the SABR 51 information table to allow other convention attendees to take a self-guided tour anytime during their stay in Chicago.

Please note: There is one section of the tour where we will have to descend stairs to the lower level of Michigan Avenue (near the Billy Goat Tavern). There is no ADA-accessible route near this stop on the tour, so if these stairs will be a problem, please contact the tour guide in advance at
