SABR: SiriusXM and SABR team up for new show on MLB Network Radio

Looking forward to this. And is a podcast in the cards?

SiriusXM will team up with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) to launch a new show focused on examining and interpreting the statistical analysis that plays a critical role in baseball today.

Behind the Numbers: Baseball SABR Style on SiriusXM will debut on Sunday, February 15 (7:00-8:00 pm ET) and air weekly throughout the year on MLB Network Radio, available to subscribers nationwide on XM channel 89, Sirius channel 209 and on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App.

SABR serves as a premier resource for baseball information around the world. Behind the Numbers: Baseball SABR Style on SiriusXM will study the statistics that drive today’s baseball conversation and discuss how baseball insiders interpret those numbers. Host Vince Gennaro, SABR’s President, is recognized as one of today’s thought leaders in baseball analytics. As a consultant to MLB teams, he is at the forefront of integrating baseball’s big data with innovative technology.

SABR announces 2015 Henry Chadwick Award recipients

Another great class of recipients.

David Block: In 2005, his early research was published as Baseball Before We Knew It, the 2006 Seymour Medal winner. It was a study of references to games called some variant of Base Ball which were published long before Cartwright and the Knickerbocker rules. His research continued, using dictionaries, novels and diaries that contained references to the game from 18th- and early 19th-century England

Dick Cramer: Cramer has been doing sabermetrics for just about as long as anyone alive. He started analyzing baseball statistics in the middle 1960s, not long after graduating from Harvard, and by 1969 Cramer had discovered (or re-invented) a worthy metric now known as OPS.

Bill Deane: Deane served as the Senior Research Associate at the National Baseball Hall of Fame Library from 1986 to 1994 [...] Bill’s personal research interests delve into both the game’s numbers and its history. They include an ongoing list of players who homered in their final major league at bats; an ongoing list of major leaguers who were murdered, committed suicide, or died accidental deaths; the documenting successful executions of the hidden-ball trick; and the debunking and disproving of baseball myths.

Jerry Malloy (RIP): His first great contribution to baseball history was “Out at Home: Baseball Draws the Color Line, 1887.” This monumentally important essay, published in The National Pastime in 1983, transformed our understanding of black baseball and won commendation from C. Vann Woodward, the preeminent historian of American race relations.

David Nemec: Nemec got started writing baseball trivia books in the 1970s. He moved on to writing a history of the game’s rules before delivering his signature contributions in the ‘90s: The Beer and Whisky League: The Illustrated History of the American Association—Baseball’s Renegade Major League (1995) and The Great Encyclopedia of Nineteenth Century Major League Baseball (1997), still cited as the definitive treatment of the subject even before it was expanded and republished in 2006.

Congratulations to all.
