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.

Every evening will be terrific - come out and join us!

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?

Tangotiger Blog: Weekend at SABR’s (part 1 of 3)

Tangotiger’s experience at the SABR Analytics Conference.

This is the non-technical post.  Part 2 will have the new stuff I did on “What If” and Part 3 will have the new stuff on “Shifts against RHH”.  Both are work-in-progresses.  Which is really what Statcast is, every question answered, uncovers another two.  Our LACK of knowledge will grow exponentially with more Statcast findings!  More accurately, the awareness of our lack of knowledge will do so.
