SABR Allan Roth Chapter meeting at the Sport Museum
What a great opportunity to visit the Sport Museum in Los Angeles when the SABR Allan Roth Chapter scheduled the October 26 meeting there! I invited Lorena and Rosie to come along. The first words I heard Lorena say was “WOW!” Yeah, my sentiments too. What a great museum! I had seen part of Gary Cypres collection at Dodger Stadium and also at the Folks museum when both the SABR local chapter and the Baseball Reliquary had meeting events there last year, but to see the 30,000 square foot warehouse that is home to the is amazing.
Gary Cypres. I did not see him at the museum but I had met him at the Dodger FanFest back in January when Mark Langill, Dodger Historian introduced me to him.

I did not have time to completely see all the collection but here are a small portion of pictures from the Sport Museum:
Jackie Robinson collection
Part of the Babe collection. There was way more than I took pictures
Babe Ruth’s 1938 uniform
I think I will do a 2nd part of this post. Still got more pictures and I have run out of time. I also want to talk about our speaker Jay Johnson and the two presentations we had that day. I had a great time at the SABR meeting and checking out the museuum.
Way cool Emma! I would love to see that museum. Is it ever open to the public?
I like that 1939 World’s Fair logo on the Babe’s uniform sleeve. I never knew that existed.
It is not open to the public. It is a great museum. I could spend more time there but we only had time to look before the meeting, during the lunch break and after the meeting about 30 minutes. You would love the place!
The US flag on the Ebbets Field is inaccurate. It got 50 stars only from 1960 and the Dodgers left Brooklyn in 1957. In that year the US flag has 48 stars.
