Save the date! SABR 46 will be held July 27-31, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Miami in Miami, Florida. Registration information will be available at SABR.org/convention in early 2016.
The Miami Marlins’ homestand that week includes games against the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies. Marlins Park, which opened in 2012 on the site of the historic Orange Bowl, is a state-of-the-art retractable roof facility offering a stunning visual experience for fans, including spectacular views of downtown Miami, the famous “Red Grooms” home-run sculpture in left-center field, two 450-gallon fish tanks behind home plate, The Clevelander, and the unique Bobblehead Museum.
The 2016 national convention will be SABR’s 46th annual gathering; the organization’s founding in Cooperstown in 1971 is counted as the first.
This will be SABR’s second national convention in the Sunshine State, and the first since SABR 30 in 2000. Hall of Famers Tony Perez and Monte Irvin spoke at the West Palm Beach convention that year, along with then-Marlins general manager Dave Dombrowski, a longtime SABR member, and former major-league pitcher Elden Auker.
