SABR 46: Want to throw out the first pitch at Marlins Park in Miami?

Want to throw out the first pitch at SABR 46?

Thanks to the generosity of the Miami Marlins, anyone who makes a donation of $1,000 or more to the SABR General Fund between now and Wednesday, June 15 will have the opportunity to go on the field for batting practice before the Marlins game vs. the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 29 at Marlins Park.

Participating donors will also be entered into a drawing to throw out the first pitch at the Marlins game on July 29. The drawing will be held during the Ross Adell Welcome Reception during SABR 46.

This special opportunity is only available for up to six SABR donors (or a guest of your choosing.) Following our SABR 46 ballpark session — highlighted by guest speakers Barry Bonds, Don Mattingly, Andre Dawson, Tony Perez, and Eduardo Perez — SABR donors will be able to go on to the field during batting practice before the game. Each one-time donation is good for one on-field ticket.

In addition to the on-field opportunity at Marlins Park and the chance to throw out the first pitch, the SABR 46 donation package also includes two tickets to the SABR 46 Donors Breakfast, a SABR logo commemorative crystal baseball, and a one-year membership to SABR.

1929 Chicago Cubs biographies now posted online

In SABR’s Winning on the North Side: The 1929 Chicago Cubs, edited by Gregory H. Wolf and published in 2015, we celebrated one of the most exciting offensive juggernauts in baseball history.

Bashing their way to the pennant by crushing their opponents in a high-scoring era, skipper Joe McCarthy’s Cubs led the majors with 982 runs scored. Future Hall of Famers Hack Wilson, NL MVP Rogers Hornsby, and Kiki Cuyler, along with Riggs Stephenson formed one of the most potent quartets in baseball history, collectively scoring 493 runs and knocking in 520. As awe-inspiring as the Cubs offense was, their pitching was almost as good. Charlie Root, Guy Bush, and Pat Malone anchored a staff that finished second in team ERA and led the league in shutouts. Also included are biographies of club owner William Wrigley, visionary executive Bill Veeck Sr., and Margaret Donahue, the first female executive in baseball history.

The SABR BioProject biographies that appeared in Winning on the North Side can now be read online at: /category/completed-book-projects/1929-chicago-cubs

You can also purchase the book or download the e-book by clicking here. SABR members can download all SABR Digital Library e-books for free at SABR.org/ebooks.

Would you like to help decide the winners of SABR’s research awards?

Each year, the SABR Board of Directors appoints more than a dozen members to small committees that choose our research award winners.

Now is the time to let us know if you would like to be considered for one of these positions. To apply, please send an e-mail to SABR Director Ty Waterman indicating which award you would like to judge, and providing answers to these questions: (1) why you are interested in serving (2) any relevant experience (3) what your research interests are. If you choose to weave these questions into one answer, you may do so.

Calling all User Interaction and Big Data Geeks

Perhaps a camel is a horse designed by committee, but small groups can deliver outstanding apps in short order with the right combination of people. Imagine you could sit in front of the 120,000 index cards The Sporting News kept on every player who signed a professional baseball contract during the 20th century and use them to complete the information missing from the master database of major and minor league players.

Soon, SABR members will be able to do this — if we build them a great app. In conjunction with the LA84 Foundation, SABR is imaging the cards and digitizing the contents into full text records with integrated image mapping in XML files.

If this intrigues you and you think you may have expertise to bring to the table, please contact SABR Treasurer F.X. Flinn, who is coordinating the project.
