We have our spring SABR chapter meeting this Saturday at Seattle Pacific University at 12:00.
We are approaching our spring meeting, Saturday, April 27, at the Seattle Pacific University Ames Library seminar room. The Ames Library is at 3307 3rd Ave. West, Seattle WA 98119. The seminar room is on the second floor.
Here is some logistical driving/parking assistance from our resident SPU host, Professor Bill Woodward: “Access free parking from W Dravus St, three blocks south from the traffic signal at 3rd W and W Nickerson, as shown at http://spu.edu/info/maps/index.asp (Lot #45). The Ames Library is immediately adjacent (Bldg #14); the Seminar Room is on the 2nd floor.”
The meeting will run from 12:00 – 4:00 PM. We will finish an hour earlier than usual to allow ourselves ample time to get to the ballgame. Please plan to stay until the end to hear all of our great speakers. Here is the tentative agenda:
12:00 Call to Order, Announcements, Introductions

Final Note for Daniel, a young Yankees fan in New Jersey: Vanessa Stevens from https://mathmagicacademy.com/ runs an afterschool program and one of her young mathematicians also plays in Little League. He had found our pages while doing some research. As Vanessa wrote to me in an email: "Daniel thought that it'd be cool to share another baseball trivia/history article with you! His favorite team is the Yankees (we live in New Jersey), so he chose this article about the Yankees' great success over the last 100 years- https://attractionpass.com/pass/the-beginning-of-a-dynasty-timeline-of-new-york-yankees-history- . I thought it was a neat article, and thought you might be able to include it on your page? I'd love to show Daniel that he could contribute another cool baseball article to your page!"
Daniel! We are the right place for math, baseball, and history! Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing! I hope your Little League season went well and as always, that the Yankees beat the Red Sox! Its a sentiment even a Mariners fan can get behind!
