This past Saturday, the San Diego Central Library once again hosted the San Diego-Ted Williams SABR Chapter‘s Winter Meeting on the 8th floor amongst the Baseball Research Center collection. The Society for American Baseball Research meets twice a year to discuss baseball and baseball history. While I’m not a SABR member (yet), all of their meetings are open to the public, so I went.
This time the special guest speaker were Wells Oliver and Brian McBurney from the Padres front office, Padres Social Hour host Jesse Agler, and UT San Diego reporter and native San Diegan Kirk Kenney.
Last week, Padres Trail wrote a preview of the San Diego SABR Winter Meeting that took place on Saturday. Unfortunately, he was unable to make it, because he was busy on the Eastern seaboard getting flights canceled and driving between airports to try and make connections.
Lucky for you, I was able to go, as all San Diego SABR meetings are free to the general public.
It was held in the auditorium at the new Central Library downtown. I’ve been to the new library once before and visited the SABR collection off of the 8th floor reading room. If you haven’t been yet, I recommend it. It’s quite impressive. And is only going to get more impressive.
