Join us for the ninth annual SABR Analytics Conference on March 13-15, 2020, at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown in Arizona, where we’ll bring together the top minds in the baseball analytics community to discuss, debate and share insightful ways to analyze and examine the great game of baseball. The early-bird registration discount ends on Friday, January 17, so register today to join us!

The Analytics Conference schedule consists of a combination of Guest Speakers, Panels, and Research Presentations — plus the unique Diamond Dollars Case Competition, in which undergraduate, graduate and law school students from across the country analyze and present a real baseball operations decision.

Programming will begin on the afternoon of Friday, March 13 and will run through Sunday afternoon on March 15. A large block of rooms for SABR Analytics Conference attendees is available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Click here for highlights of the high-quality content from the 2019 conference.

SABR has a long and storied history with baseball statistical analysis, evidenced by the link between our name and sabermetrics. SABR’s long history in this area of baseball research, coupled with our mission of advancing the understanding and knowledge of baseball, makes us the perfect choice to coordinate and host this ground-breaking event.

Business of Baseball Committee seeks more volunteers for MLB Team Employee Directory project

Bill VeeckThe Business of Baseball Committee has begun building a historical database of major league baseball employees. This is an exciting project that should give us a new lens into major league front and back offices. We have a terrific group of volunteers who have made this project possible: To date, we have completed 321 team-seasons and have another 151 assigned. But there are still many team-seasons to go.

To accomplish this project we need additional volunteers to enter data from information sources, principally team media guides, into a spreadsheet. Please note: you do not need to have the sources — if you have interest in a particular team (or year), we will get you the sources electronically. But if you do have a source with the relevant information and would be willing to enter it into a spreadsheet, that would be terrific.

We currently have media guides that we can share electronically for all teams from 2011 to 2019, plus longer runs for several teams. Additionally, we have hard copies of roughly two-thirds of the years between 1983 and 2004, and we can upload the relevant couple of pages from each if there is a team you’d like to work on. For more information, please contact Dan Levitt at
