    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.

    Re: Sabr

    So whats a SABR meeting like?? A bunch of guys sitting around drinking beer and talking about baseball history?? If thats the case I am in. I can probally talk with more intelligence about the 1970 Reds than I can the 2006 Reds.
    It looks more like a bunch of guys arguing about whether or not Harry Potter is the best book ever. Or maybe whether the new episodes of Star Wars live up to the hype. In other words, it looks like a hardcore nerd fest, but you can make the call.

    Do you read books on Baseball?

    If so these are the guys who write most of them, so beat on them if you must but know this.

    I can't stand fantasy movies like the aforementioned dreck.

    So who's the geek?

    You make the call.

    That looks like Tom Tippett and Luke Kramer from Diamond-Mind over on the right side.

    Believe me, I appreciate their work with all my heart, but I don't think I'd want to hang with them.

    Understood, but sometimes the geekiest guys are the ones to watch out for.

    How long does it take an order for membership to register? I just purchased one, and I know I submitted the right e-mail address, because I received a confirmation from SABR. Is there anything I need to do to finalize it?

    So if you can't stand it, its dreck?

    Hey, I like movies like The Conversation and My Dinner with Andre. But, I'm a parent too, and Harry Potter rocks. In both print and the theaters.

    I also read comics, the Art of War, and anything by Piers Anthony.


    And I started reading Bill James in 1985. I'm not a member of SABR, but when my kids finally move out, I probably will be.

    I'll also have 20 subscriptions to Marvel Comics.

    MLB. com has a video segment from the 2006 SABR convention in Seattle. You can watch the twenty minute feature here. The link is at the bottom of the page on the left.

    "...You just have a wider lens than one game."
    --Former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky, on why he didn't fly Josh Hamilton to Colorado for one game.

    "...its money well-spent. Don't screw around with your freedom."
    --Roy Tucker, on why you need to lawyer up when you find yourself swimming with sharks.

    Please post a picture of yourself so we can critique your looks and check your "coolness" factor.

    Thanks.
