SABR announces formation of new Diversity and Inclusion Committee

SABR is pleased to announce the formation of a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which was established during the SABR 46 convention last week in Miami. 

Our new D&I committee will be dedicated to promoting outreach into traditionally underrepresented communities in SABR’s membership base, and ensuring that SABR events provide a welcoming environment to individuals of all backgrounds. The strategy and vision for the SABR D&I Committee will be led by a steering committee, comprised of SABR Director Emily Hawks, D&I committee chair; SABR Vice President Leslie Heaphy, chair of the Women in Baseball Research Committee; Anthony Salazar, chair of the Latino Baseball Research Committee; and Larry Lester, chair of the Negro Leagues Research Committee

The SABR D&I Committee will also have several affiliate members, who will be crucial in our community outreach and inclusion efforts. If you are interested in joining the committee as an affiliate member, please contact Emily Hawks at
