Dodgers Select a Seat Open House and SABR Day.

Checking back at the Dodger Open House last year http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/2011/01/27/dodgers-select-a-seat-open-house-and-sabr-day/ it coincided with SABR Day.  This year again Dodgers Open House coincides with SABR day (Saturday 1/28/2012)  so why not have it at Dodger Stadium?  

The Dodgers annual Select a Seat, an event for season ticket holders,  started Thursday 1/26/2012  and it will conclude with the Open House on Saturday 1/28/2012.   It is our first chance to have a Dodger dog at the stadium.  Don’t they just taste better at the Stadium.   The Dodgers sent us this picture of the sunrise at Dodger Stadium:

 

Although I was not feeling well, It was great seeing my Dodger fan friends there like William (Deuce’s dad), Dee, Sylvia and Jeanine to name a few.    Also Darryl and Leslie who recently became season ticket holders.  Jeanine and I met Darryl at the SABR Fall AFL conference.  Darryl said that we convinced him to get season tickets.  Welcome to the Dodger fan family Darryl & Leslie.   Other friends like Lorena, Rosie and Rene will go to tomorrow.  Will miss them. 

SABR Day Saturday 1/28/2012.  I was going to the SABR website at http://sabr.org/ when I ran into this picture!  haha, that is me chatting with yes, SABR members, the most knowledgeable baseball fans.  Down below in a Tiger hat is Max, another very knowledgeable fan. 

If you can make it go SABR Day.  There are many locations that are hosting SABR Day from Washington to Vermont to Toronto, to Puerto Rico.  For more information go to  http://sabr.org/sabrday:

SABR Day is an annual event that brings together SABR members and friends on the same day, regardless of where they live. The third annual SABR Day will be held on January 28, 2012. Regional SABR meetings are open to all baseball fans — though we encourage you to join SABR if you like what you find — and are usually free to attend. Guest speakers often include current and former baseball players, managers, umpires, executives, scouts, writers and authors.

In Seattle, SABR Day will be held in conjuction with the Mariners FanFest.  In Minneapolis, the chapter will participate with the TwinsFest.    in Arizona it will be at Tempe Diablo Stadium, in New York at the New York Public library.   Check the site for more information.  I counted 39 locations.  

Looking forward to the event at La Habra library.  I have never been to this library and I love visiting new libraries!   From SABR:

Former Milwaukee Braves All-Star catcher Del Crandall will be joining us for SABR Day at the La Habra Library. High school coach Eddie Alvarez will speak and Eric Dearborn will present photographs of final games at various ballparks. Authors Daryl Grigsby (“Celebrating Ourselves: African-Americans and the Promise of Baseball”) and Ron Selter (on .400 hitters) will also speak. 

(note to me:  grr…second time Ido this post as I lost my original post).

That’s cool that a picture of you ended up on their webpage! I once had a photo of me appear in a ski brochure for Stratton Mountain in Vermont – the ironic thing was I don’t think I ever really skied much after the photo was taken.

Jeff,
You are too funny. There is more to SABR than statistic. Look at all the information available to you. You have access to all the Sporting News archives.

Sue,
So it was a once time you were at Stratton Mountain in Vermont? Wow!

I actually *was* going to go to the New York chapter’s meeting at the NYC Public Library, but when I e-mailed the person in charge of selling tickets the day before, he didn’t reply to my e-mail until the day AFTER. Oh well, I guess there’s always next year.
