SABR Nashville Chapter Meeting Jan. 27

The first meeting of the Nashville chapter of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR) will be held on Saturday, January 27 from 1-4 p.m. in Sluggers Sports Bar and Grill atop Greer Stadium in Nashville, TN.

Research presentations will be given by fellow members Peggy Gripshover, Skip Nipper, and Gerald Wood. Our speaker will be SABR member Clinton "Butch" McCord, a Nashville native who played for the Nashville Cubs and Baltimore Elite Giants in the Negro Leagues.

An organizational meeting will follow, including the election of officers and the selection of an official chapter name.

Members may also be interested in attending the 69th annual Old Timers Baseball Banquet on Friday, Jan. 26. Skip Nipper has reserved a table for SABR members who'd like to attend. Tickets are $25 in advance. To reserve tickets, please contact Skip on the chapter Yahoo discussion group.
