SABR #42 in Minneapolis

One of the best things about SABR is meeting with friends you have made thru SABR. After meeting Abby and Kent last year at SABR41 in Long Beach, you would always see the three of us together. The three of us said we would keep in touch with each other. Less than a month later, Abby emailed us about a SABR/Baseball Prospectus event at Citi Field. Kent could not make the trip in August but I did. In addition to seeing Citi Field, Abby and I went to watch a Cyclone game.

Kent is a Dodger fan and a Red Sox fan. Abby is a Yankee fan and you all know I bleed Dodger Blue.

I was remembering that last year Kent wanted to try his first In-N-Out burger. Well, he asked the front desk how far was the closest In-N-Out. The shuttle did not make it that far so we took a taxi. Because we did not want to miss the next session, we had the taxi go thru the drive thru. We quickly ate at the hotel and headed to the next session.

The following day as the bus tour was heading to Lake Elsinore where we were going to catch the Storms against the Rawhides, I looked out the window and saw an In & Out place, I suddenly remembered that I had my car parked at the hotel! I turned to Kent and told him that I had remembered about my car a day late. I remember the taxi was not cheap. Funny I can remember baseball facts but had completely forgotten about my car.

I did not need a car in Minneapolis. I had been there the year before when the Dodgers played there 6/27/11 to 6/29/11. Both Abby and I arrived in Minneapolis in time to take the library tour and the tour of downtown that Brenda was given. This library has a piano! I love libraries!

To be continue… Pictures coming.

I can’t wait to read the rest of it. The title alone makes it sound like an interesting event.

Mateo,
Got an email from my friend Kent. He said he was having SABR withdrawls. Next year in Philadelphia. the following one in Houston.

Great seeing you, again. The SABR convention is the highlight of the year.

I may be at the one in Philadelphia. Is a SABR membership needed to attend? If it is, I want to get on that now.

That woudl be great! I took lots of pictures in Minneapolis. Is fun watching the Trivia contests at the end. Your subscription starts from the day you subscribe. I think it is needed or is a different price if not. go to SABR.org for more info. It would be great to meet you. Philadelphia will be a new stadium for me. I’ve been to Philly but not the stadium.
