2016 SABR DAY @ PETCO PARK 1/30/16

Today the San Diego Ted Williams Chapter held their SABR Day at Petco Park. The 1st guest Norman Maunt wrote 3 books about Philadelphia A's Manager Connie Mack. He gave some great nuggets about Connie Mack that many of you and I did not know. The 2nd guest Carlos Bauer talked about Bill Weiss' collection of old minor league stats and how reliable were they. Third guest was Padres asst GM Josh Stein. He talked about rise of infield shifts and wondered why hitters to day don't beat the shift by bunting and hitting to opposite fields is a lost art. Fourth guest was Andy McCue made a presentation of an alternative view of Bill Veeck. Last SD SABR Director Andy Strasburg announced plans for the Summer Meeting to be held July 9th during ASG weekend. Here are some pics I took. ENJOY!
