From Josh Rosenblat at Northwestern Magazine on October 26, 2016, with mention of SABR member Bill Savage:

Bill Savage is a Northwestern alumnus and associate professor and adviser for the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. He’s also a scholar of literary and popular culture, as well as a widely published writer. But perhaps most important, Savage is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan and baseball historian.

A member of the Society for American Baseball Research, Savage wrote a number of columns for ESPN this summer about the experience of watching the team from a fan’s perspective.
