SABR’s many accomplishments over the past 38 years include publishing more than six dozen books and journals, conducting the research behind many changes to the statistical record such as Ty Cobb’s career hit total and Hack Wilson’s RBI total in 1930; building databases such as the SABR Baseball Index, a bibliographic citation database of over 220,000 records, and the minor league statistical database, now available through Baseball-Reference.com, and bringing together a community of baseball researchers.
