Today, We Are Officially Part of SABR
As of today, Sept. 21, the Pandemic Baseball Book Club is officially a Charter Community within SABR. Joining forces with a preeminent source of baseball research and analysis will allow us to broaden our reach and interact with our audience in ways that are fruitful for authors and readers alike. It's downright exciting.
SABR, with 6,000 members and dozens of regional chapters across the country, is itself a baseball community, and the Pandemic Baseball Book Club, as collective of baseball authors, sees itself as a seamless addition. With initiatives aimed at easy connections — for chapters looking for guest speakers for example, or for authors looking for expertise from the most informed collective of baseball obsessives on the planet — this connection should be beneficial to all involved.
SABR is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. We look forward to helping it forge the next 50. SABR members can access our community page at SABR.org. Non-members can enjoy the conversation below, between PBBC founders Jason Turbow, Anika Orrock and Eric Nusbaum, and SABR CEO Scott Bush. Come for a chat about what this partnership might bring, stay for an unexpected digression about the minor leagues and general baseball nerdistry.
