The San Diego SABR (Ted Williams) Chapter will hold it’s Winter/Spring meeting next Saturday, 24 Jan, at the San Diego Central Library. The discussion will start at approximately 1pm, and probably run until 4 or so.
As with all our meetings, attendance is free, and not limited to members of the Chapter. If you are interested in attending, please come on down. Parking at the library is pretty convenient, either underneath the building (2 hours are free with validation) or across the street in one of the public lots.
Why should you go? Take a look at the agenda:
- Padres Baseball Operations staff members Brian McBurney (software developer) and Wells Oliver (baseball systems architect) will talk about their position and responsibilities within the organization, as well as up-to-the-minute happenings with the team. Given how active AJ Preller has been this off-season, theirs has not been a slow winter.
- Padres Social Media Host and broadcaster Jesse Agler. Jesse will cover a wide range of subjects, which should include the use of social media in baseball and significant changes to PETCO Park in advance of this season.
- SD-UT reporter Kirk Kenney. Kirk will talk about growing up a Padres fan, graduating from SDSU, and his career as a newspaper reporter. His writing career began with Tony Gwynn’s last season at SDSU, and resulted in a long-term friendship.
As has become custom, we will meet in the Baseball Research Center, located on the 8th floor of the library. Thanks for reading, and I/we hope to see you then.
Wait – he still writes here?
