Later on this morning is my Select A Seat appointment at Dodger Stadium. Is my first time to taste a Dodger dog for 2011 and see the Dodger friends that I have not seen since the season ended.
I would have gone to Saturday’s Dodger Stadium Open House but I am already committed to the SABR Day on Saturday.
From the SABR link below:
SABR Day 2011 takes place on Saturday, January 29. The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) is a member-driven nonprofit organization made up of nearly 7,000 members who are fans of baseball and its rich and varied history. Although a sizable portion (about 10%) of the membership comes together for SABR’s national convention each year, with 55 chapters scattered through the US (as well as Canada, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, and Japan), it would impossible to gather the entire SABR community in one place at one time. Our alternative solution is to have as many members as possible come together on the same day–regardless of where they live. On our first SABR Day in 2010, more than 700 SABR members from 37 chapters got together at 34 separate meetings across North America.
Below is a list of chapter and chartered community events already scheduled for SABR Day 2011. Be sure to check back often as more chapters finalize their plans. Whether or not you’re a member of SABR, you’re invited to attend a SABR Day 2011 event and be a part of a community of dedicated fans of the greatest game around.
The one in Boston is at Fenway Park and a couple of them at the MLB team Fanfest. Wish the one in the LA area was at Dodger Stadium but is at Ervine, CA.
