For the ninth consecutive season, the SABR Defensive Index (SDI) will be used to help select the winners of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award® and Rawlings Platinum Glove Award™, presented by SABR.
On Thursday, Rawlings announced the finalists for the 2021 Rawlings Gold Glove Award, honoring the best individual fielding performances at each position in the American League™ and National League™. The winners will be unveiled during a one-hour, special-edition broadcast of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball at 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 7.
Following the show, voting will begin online for the Rawlings Platinum Glove Award, presented by SABR.

The final SABR Defensive Index rankings will be released at SABR.org/SDI on November 7, immediately following the ESPN broadcast.

“The history of baseball in Baltimore is as deep-rooted and tradition-rich as anywhere in America. If you are a fan of our national pastime, I am certain you will enjoy scrolling through this compelling chronicle of what makes Baltimore baseball unique. From Ruth to Ripken, from the Elite Giants to our Baltimore Orioles, there’s nothing quite as intriguing as these tales of our orange and black.” — Mike Gibbons, Director Emeritus, Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation
Baltimore Baseball touches on some of the rich history of baseball in the Baltimore area, through recounts of 84 games from 1876 through 2019.
The bulk of the games feature the Baltimore Orioles — the current franchise from 1954 to the present — but we also have games from the nineteenth century, the early twentieth century, and the Negro Leagues. Some of the most memorable games in Baltimore history are included, along with some unique contests, and Hall of Fame players featured throughout.
Also included are “ballpark biographies” of seven Baltimore ballparks — Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Memorial Stadium, Union Park, American League Park, Bugle Field, Terrapin Park, and Maryland Park, and an essay on other early ballparks.
Fifty-four members of the Society for American Baseball Research and SABR’s Babe Ruth Chapter contributed their talents as researchers, writers, and editors to create this look at Baltimore Baseball, an ideal keepsake for diehard O’s fans and an apt introduction for those coming to Charm City for the first time.
Contributors include: Malcolm Allen, Steve Behnke, Gary Belleville, Luis A. Blandon Jr., Bob Brown, John J. Burbridge Jr., Frederick C. Bush, Sean Church, Matt Clever, Alan Cohen, Peter Coolbaugh, Chris Corrigan, Richard Cuicchi, Tim Deale, Bill Felber, Bob Fleishman, Brian Frank, Gordon J.

While we continue to celebrate SABR’s 50th anniversary this year, we are keeping a keen eye on our organization’s future and have so many exciting projects on deck. Today, we would like to share details of one of the most noteworthy programs on the horizon.
In 2022, we will deliver the SABR Local Grants program. This initiative will provide an opportunity for chapters, research committees, and chartered communities to apply for funding for their projects under SABR’s Four Pillars: Research, Scholarship, Preservation, and Future of the Game.
The Local Grants program will provide a defined mechanism for the SABR national office to assist regional and group leaders in the pursuit of passion projects. It will also allow us to see our donors’ incredible generosity at work at the local level in addition to general organizational efforts. In total, $10,000 in SABR Local Grants will be awarded in 2022!
All SABR chapters, chartered communities, and research committees are eligible to apply beginning on November 1, 2021. Individual SABR members and non-SABR groups are not eligible, so if you have an individual idea for a program grant, please follow up with your local chapter leadership or appropriate research committee to discuss an application.
SABR’s Editorial Board welcomes new project proposals from members to be considered for publication through the Digital Library, SABR.org, or any other multimedia formats. We strongly encourage new proposals that have no intention of being published as a book.
- Visit https://bit.ly/sabr-editorial-board-proposals to submit a SABR project proposal online
Proposals will be graded using the following criteria: Significance, Interest, Marketability, Intersectionality, Originality, and Likelihood of Completion.
SABR seeks to publish 2-4 web-based multimedia projects (click here for an example) and 6-8 books per year. Book projects should be of a scope that can fit in a single volume, typically between 100,000 and 200,000 total words.
Deadlines for review are April and October, with a likely publication timeline of about 18-24 months.
The SABR 19th Century Grave Marker Project is excited to announce the dedication of its latest project — a gravestone for 19th-century home run king Ed Williamson. The dedication will take place at 1:00 p.m. CDT on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago. All baseball fans are welcome to attend.
Edward Nagle “Ned” Williamson was a talented and powerful third baseman during the 1880s for the Chicago White Stockings, now known as the Cubs. In 1884, Williamson slugged a record-setting 27 homers. It was the most home runs ever hit by a National League ballplayer in the 19th century and was the major-league single-season record for 25 years, until Babe Ruth hit 29 homers in 1919.
The 19th Century Grave Marker Project identifies 19th-century baseball notables who either lack a grave marker or whose headstone is in dire disrepair, and then rectify those issues.
