Hi, I didn't have time to write up a meeting recap, but we had an excellent meeting, the kind that can help any true fan weather the winter void between the World Series and that earliest sign of Spring, the day when pitchers and catchers report. Anthony Salazar presented Baseball Cards & Chicano Pop Art. Shannon Drayer from KIRO Radio did a Q&A, a welcome opportunity to talk baseball with The Clubhouse Insider. Shannon is one of the best reporters we have in this new media landscape and it was great to get her insight. Rob Garratt read from and talked about his new book, “Home Team: The Turbulent History of the San Francisco Giants”. Rob provided great background on his long process with this book and how it came about. Billy Mac spoke about his new book, “My Oh My: The Dave Niehaus Story”. Billy knew Dave personally and was able to bring that relationship to the forefront in his presentation. William Christ presented a slideshow of two months spent Motorcycling To All 30 MLB Ballparks. William shared a fascinating presentation. It was a really great meeting, with fascinating speakers who bring a passion for the game from all over the baseball map.
Our January meeting is tentative. As you may have heard, there will be a 1 year hiatus for the Mariners Fan Fest event. We have been trying to secure a space to have a SABR day meeting in January, and will let everyone know as soon as we can.
Regarding the President's Day weekend meeting in February, that will be
Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 12 PM - 5 PM, at the Living Savior Lutheran Church in Tualitin. Bob Russon is putting together the agenda for that and will have that out to members as the meeting gets closer.
