If you aren’t a member of SABR (Society for American Baseball Research), then you are truly missing out on a lot of fun and information. The Society has chapter meetings all over the country, with members offering presentations on baseball research projects. There is an annual convention which includes research presentations, panel discussions, trips to Major and Minor league parks, a trivia contest, and a lot of friendly folks (most of whom DO NOT live in their parents’ basement).
Each name here, both first and last, is an acceptable Scrabble word. This is not an inclusive list!
