The Halsey Hall Chapter of SABR is based in the Twin Cities and welcomes everyone interested in baseball to come to any of our events. We meet semiannually at our chapter meetings (in the fall and the spring) and have a number of research presentations as well as guest speakers. At our most recent meeting in November, we had former Twins pitcher Dick Stigman and Gulf Coast League umpire Emma Charlesworth-Seiler.
We have a number of events upcoming in the new year, including:
- Halsey Hall will have a table at TwinsFest, January 19th-21st. Stop by and say "hi"!
- We will be having our spring chapter meeting in April (specific date TBD)
- Our research committee meeting is Monday, December 18th at 7PM at the Hennepin County Southdale Library, 7001 York Avenue South, Edina. It is continuing its work on an exhibit displaying the names of Hall of Famers who played in Minnesota prior to the arrival of the Twins.
- The next Fred Souba Hot Stove Saturday Morning, an informal breakfast gathering for the purpose of talking baseball, will be at 9:00 AM on Saturday, January 6 at Bunny’s Northeast, 34 13th Avenue NE, Minneapolis 55413
In addition, the national organization has its Analytics Conference in Phoenix from March 9th-11th and its National Convention is in Pittsburgh on June 20th-24th.
