SABR welcomes new Tampa Bay chapter and Century Research Committee

SABR’s Board of Directors has approved the formation of a new chapter in Florida and a new research committee.

The Tampa Bay Chapter serves members in the Tampa/St. Petersburg region; the chapter leader is Mark Drucker.

The Century Research Committee, led by Sharon Hamilton, provides a research hub for SABR research and activities to memorialize the anniversaries of important milestones in baseball history. Although the Century Committee is designed to primarily focus on 100th anniversary events, its work will encompass other significant anniversaries — e.g. 25th, 50th, 75th — as well.

SABR’s 80 regional chapters cover 39 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.

SABR’s 32 research committees showcase the diverse interests of our members, such as the Deadball Era, Latino Baseball, Negro Leagues, Statistical Analysis, and Women in Baseball.
