SABR Member Benefit Spotlight: Contribute to Projects and Publications

SABR Member Benefit Spotlight: Contribute to Projects and Publications

MARCH 28, 2024 — As a SABR member, you have vast resources and benefits at your disposal. With so much information at your fingertips, we realize it can be overwhelming to absorb it all! To highlight key benefits, read on for a SABR Member Benefit Spotlight, an email series that identifies and explains some of the most valuable features of your membership. We hope this allows you to take full advantage of all SABR has to offer.

Today, we want to show you how to contribute to different projects or publications within the organization.


Are you looking for more ways to get involved within SABR? A great way to do that is by contributing to a research project or a publication. Whether you’re a veteran researcher, or just getting started, all SABR members are invited to participate. Below are just a few examples of how to contribute.

SABR BioProject

SABR Biography Project

The Baseball Biography Project is an ongoing effort to research and write comprehensive biographical articles on people who played or managed in the major leagues. With over 6,000 (and counting) biographies contributed by SABR members, the ambitious goal of the BioProject is to publish a full-life biography of every major league player in history. If you discover a bio that has yet to be written, you could write the story! Click here for the BioProject Resources page, which contains information on how you can contribute to the project. 

SABR Games Project

SABR Games Project

The SABR Baseball Games Project was formed in 2014 to research, write, and publish accounts of major-league regular season, postseason, and All-Star Games, including Negro Leagues games, along with other games of historical significance such as in the minor leagues or international or exhibition contests. These game accounts complement Retrosheet and Baseball-Reference box scores, as well as SABR BioProject essays on the players involved. The Games Project is another great way to get involved with your own baseball research. Want to learn more about contributing? Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about getting started on your own game article. 

SABR Digital Library

SABR Publications

The SABR Digital Library is home to nearly 100 free digital baseball books, written, compiled, and edited by fellow SABR members, with topics spanning a range of decades, teams, stadiums, and games. You can contribute to a publication as a writer, editor, or fact-checker. New and experienced authors are always welcome to contribute! If you would like to get involved with SABR’s Digital Library, check out possible writing opportunities for upcoming publications or find out how to submit a proposal to the Editorial Board.
