Pandemic Baseball Book Club logo

SABR is pleased to welcome the Pandemic Baseball Book Club as an online chartered community. All SABR members are invited to sign up for email announcements and attend upcoming virtual events with baseball authors.

The Pandemic Baseball Book Club, established in the spring of 2020, is a forum for baseball authors to discuss our books, our processes, and our high adventures in the world of baseball journalism through one-on-one author interviews, panel discussions, and the occasional Quarantined Author Happy Hour. With an emphasis on diversity and quality, the PBBC is committed to maintaining a supportive, inclusive, and collaborative platform for discussion, content creation, and author promotion.
