SABR welcomes new international chapter in South Korea

SABR’s Board of Directors approved the formation of a new regional chapter at its fall board meeting on November 8-9, 2013.

The Korea Chapter, based in Seoul, South Korea, will serve SABR members in South Korea. The chapter co-chairs are Patrick Bourgo and Thomas St. John.

The Korea Chapter is the second new international chapter approved in 2013, joining the Luis Castro/Latin America Chapter, which is scheduled to hold its first major event, “Perspectivas del Béisbol,” on Friday, November 15 in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

New chapters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Rochester, New York, were approved in June.

SABR’s 63 regional chapters cover 34 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.; plus international chapters in Canada (Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia), Japan, South Korea, Latin America and the United Kingdom.
