SABR Day 2021

2021 SABR Day speakers: Bob Costas, Tim Mead

SABR commemorates its 50th anniversary in 2021 and will launch its year-long celebration with SABR Day on Saturday, January 30. SABR Day will be hosted virtually around the globe for the first time, giving baseball fans a chance to come together — wherever they live — to share their love of the game.

SABR Day registration will be free for SABR members. A $10 donation will be requested of non-members.

The virtual SABR Day program will run from 2:00-4:00 p.m. EST on January 30. Click here to register and join us!

Headlining the program will be a conversation with broadcasting legend Bob Costas of MLB Network. The 2018 recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame will bring his renowned passion and knowledge of baseball in a special session for SABR Day attendees.

National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum President Tim Mead will also be featured during this special event. Mead spent nearly four decades in the Los Angeles Angels organization, including 22 years as Vice President of Communications, before assuming oversight of the Hall of Fame’s operations in 2019.

Our moderators will include Marty Appel, author and longtime New York Yankees public relations director, and Bruce Markusen, Manager of Digital and Outreach Learning at the Baseball Hall of Fame.

“We are honored and thrilled to have Bob Costas and Tim Mead join us for the first-ever virtual SABR Day,” SABR CEO Scott Bush said. “There is not a better way to lead off our Golden Anniversary and we excitedly look forward to sharing SABR with the entire baseball community.”
