2018 Season opens Thursday, March 29, with all 30 teams playing

The earliest non-international start date ever. The last time all the teams started the same day was 1968.

This also confirms that SABR 48 will be held June 20-24, 2018, in Pittsburgh.

I’ll set the over/under for games not completed on that day due to weather at 2.5

SABR: Cool Maps of MLB Radio Networks

These maps give you a pretty decent visual of each team’s sphere of media influence, with the occasional entertaining outlier (e.g., not just one, but two Cardinals radio affiliates in Hawai’i!

I’m not sure the Red Sox are broadcast in Wyoming and New Mexico any more. Still, interesting maps.

SABR 47 - NYC

The lineup for SABR 47 - which is just two weeks away has continued to be added to.  If you haven’t signed up, please consider it - even for the day.  Across the street from Grand Central makes this hotel perfect for anyone to spend a day.  The ballpark event on Friday is a phenomenal time. This year’s speakers is jammed pack with favorites: Jim Bouton and Keith Olbermann are a couple of exciting names.  El Duque is scheduled to speak as well.

CENTRAL PARK - JULY 1, 2017 10 AM - BBTF ANNUAL SOFTBALL EXTRAVAGANZA

I think this year we should make t-shirts.

The Central Park field for 10 AM on July 1st has been submitted for approval to the Parks Department, but not yet assigned.  We’re waiting to hear back.  It’s never been a problem as yet, so hopefully it won’t be this year as well. UPDATE: 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM, Great Lawn, Field #2. -vi

Note: This is the same weekend as the massive SABR extravaganza in NYC.  I would expect all connections and all favors to be called in to get some retired MLB players or broadcast and basement-dwelling notables to come by.  Rob Neyer, Tommy Lasorda, Benny Agbayani, Robothal, Pete Rose, no target too high.  Or too low.  So maybe Calcaterra could make it.

Let’s hear it, who’s coming?
