Wes Parker Video at SABR 41 in Long Beach, CA

Greetings everyone!   I have not been able to load my pictures from my trip to Minnesota & also from the SABR41 convention.  But I have this video of Wes Parker when we caught him outside one of the sessions.    I love Wes Parker’s   love for the game. 

I had such a great time at the convention.   Everyone was so nice and friendly.   Love the fangraph group, loved talking to lots of people there.   I bought some great books.   I love the volunteering, going to the tour of old baseball ballparks in LA.   Never knew that there was a ballpark in Vernon so close to where the Farmer John company is.   Loved listening to Rob Neyer, Dennis Gilbert, Al Ferrara, Tommy Davis,  Francisco Balderrama, oh just everyone! 

Loved going back to Dodger Stadium with the group & going to my first trip to see the Storms against the Visalia Rawhides.  Did you know that  the Rawhides is locally-owned and operated by Tom and his cousin, Kevin O’Malley?   Tom’s grandfather was the legendary Walter O’Malley. 

SABR41 was a great experience and I made some  wonderful friends like Abby& Kent in this picture:

 

 I need to go to Minnesota next year where SABR42 will be held.   Also SABR43 will be in Philadelphia!  

Enjoy the video
