Baseball fans, tune in this season to SABRcast with Rob Neyer, a weekly podcast hosted by award-winning author and longtime SABR member Rob Neyer. SABRcast features insights and analysis of what's happening in modern baseball on and off the field, plus compelling interviews with figures from around the game — and music from The Baseball Project.
Neyer is a longtime baseball writer and editor for ESPN.com, SB Nation, and FoxSports.com. He began his career as a research assistant for groundbreaking baseball author Bill James and later worked for STATS, Inc. He has also written or co-written seven baseball books, including The Neyer/James Guide to Pitchers (with Bill James), winner of the Sporting News/SABR Baseball Research Award, and most recently Power Ball: Anatomy of a Modern Baseball Game, winner of this year's CASEY Award.
Episode #54: April 6, 2020

This is part of our Stay Home With SABR initiative. Live SABRcast episodes will air on Zoom at 5:00 p.m. PDT on Monday nights.
This week's guest is Jon “Boog” Sciambi, who joined ESPN full time in 2010 as play-by-play voice for MLB "Sunday Night Baseball" on ESPN Radio, while continuing the same role for college basketball, which he has done since 2005. He has also been the regular play-by-play voice for ESPN's “Wednesday Night Baseball” telecasts since 2014. Previously, Jon was the lead play-by-play announcer for the Atlanta Braves on Fox Sports South and SportSouth from 2007-09, and host for 790 The Ticket in South Florida, and as voice of the Florida Marlins on WQAM from 1997-2004.
