What’s Rob Reading?

Spring 2021 Baseball Research Journal

SABR Baseball Research Journal, Spring 2021
Edited by Cecilia M. Tan

“Welcome to the Spring 2021 issue of the Baseball Research Journal. It’s been a banner year for baseball research and writing. Why? Because during the lockdown(s) of 2020, when folks couldn’t go anywhere or do anything else, a lot of SABR members spent their time researching and writing. The result was a bumper crop of papers. One thing I do with the submissions for each issue of the BRJ is categorize them into thematic groups. Almost never is there an article that can’t be related to two or three others. Finding the threads of connection and coincidence between the articles is part of the puzzle of putting together an issue. Rarely does one article shed light directly on another, but they do sometimes seem to be in confluence, where a mode of thought or a passing mention in one article suddenly seems applicable in the next. No matter how specialized the subject, no baseball-related article sits entirely in its own silo. That’s part of the fun.”
