The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) is proud to announce a new initiative to fulfill its mission of fostering baseball research and the dissemination of the history and record of baseball.

For the first time in its history, the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) will be offering monetary grants to baseball researchers to assist them in carrying out their research.

Thanks to the generosity of the Anthony A. Yoseloff Foundation, SABR will begin a two-year program in which it will award $4,000 in baseball research grants each year.

“This program is the start of great things for SABR and baseball research. By helping remove some of the financial barriers to conducting research, SABR is advancing the cause of baseball research. The by-product of this commitment to researchers will be to get more exciting research published in our journals and on our web site” said John Zajc, SABR’s Executive Director.

While not a pre-requisite, it is hoped that the grants will help younger and/or less-established baseball researchers make their mark. The two main requirements for the grant is that the researcher be a SABR member, and that the end product of the research be published first by SABR. The application deadline for the first year of the grants is August 20, 2005.
