Following this afternoon’s rousing victory in the Bronx, we depart for the Northwest, and the
gathering of nerds celebration of the national pastime that is the annual convention of the Society for American Baseball Research. We tease, because we are proud members of this most honorable organization. Stay tuned here for all that’s new in the fields of historical and statistical baseball research. And if you happen to be in Seattle, please join us this Friday at the Elliot Bay Book Company for a reading of Spalding’s World Tour, recently honored as an editor’s choice in the New York Times Book Review. Reading starts at 5 pm.
