One of the primary initial goals of SABR was to establish a publication where members could get research published and shared with like-minded students of baseball. The Baseball Research Journal
was launched in 1972 with 19 articles including "Ty Cobb Steals Home," "The Pinch Grand Slam," "Tigers Best at Triple Plays," and "East Meets West in Negro Games." The Journal, combined with a newsletter, The SABR Bulletin, and a membership directory for networking purposes, formed a solid publishing base to fulfill SABR's objectives. In 1982, SABR added The National Pastime
to its publication program. A review of baseball history, The National Pastime compliments The Baseball Research Journal with longer articles and more photos.
During the 1980s, SABR began issuing occasional books and by the 1990s had established a tradition of providing at least one and sometimes two books each year as part of the membership benefit.
