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.
Last night it was announced that Vin Scully will make the rare trip to Fenway Park for one game! He will broacast Friday night’s game! WOOHOO!!!
The last time the Dodgers went to Fenway Park, Vin also made the trip for one game. Here he is throwing out the first pitch at that game: yeah, that is Jaime McCourt in the background.
