SABR welcomes new chapter in Virginia’s Eastern Shore

SABR’s Board of Directors has approved the formation of a new chapter.

The Bud Metheny/Virginia Eastern Shore Chapter serves members in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News, and Chesapeake region; the chapter leader is Andrew Noe. The chapter is named after Arthur “Bud” Metheny, the former Yankees outfielder — and last player to wear the uniform number 3 until it was retired for Babe Ruth — and longtime baseball coach at Old Dominion University.

SABR’s 75 regional chapters cover 38 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C.; plus international chapters in Canada (Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia), Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Latin America (Venezuela, Dominican Republic), the United Kingdom, Europe (Netherlands), and Italy.
