CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Society for American Baseball Research is pleased to announce the formation of the Asian Baseball Research Committee and the Research Committee on Science and and Baseball.

Asian Baseball Research Committee
The primary goal of the Asian Baseball Committee is to introduce Asian baseball to the North American public. The Asian Baseball Committee hopes to increase awareness of Asian baseball by producing and distributing committee newsletters; creating a website; encouraging serious studies of Asian baseball by helping researchers network; encouraging members to publish their studies in the SABR journals, and eventually holding symposium at the annual SABR conventions.

The Committee will provide a forum for all members with an interest in scientific matters, regardless of background or training.
