Nap LaJoie Chapter (R.I.) Meets next Sat., Nov. 29.

Oil Can

Here is an update on the program for the November 29 Southern New England SABR

chapter meeting in Greenville, R.I.

Oil Can Boyd will come at 1 p.m. To accommodate that arrival time, we will break

for lunch at 12:15. That will give us from 11 to 12:15 for some presentations

and the mock Hall of Fame election (that will be the leadoff event, to give Mike

Darowski time to count the votes).

After Oil Can leaves, we will resume the program of presentations, trivia quiz,

and baseball book raffle. If you have time, please stay after we conclude to put

chairs, tables, and books away.

Here are the presentations scheduled. (They won’t necessarily be in this order):

Steve Krevisky, Hank Greenberg’s MVP season in Houston

Dixie Tourangeau, Why the Red Sox were so putrid in 2014.

Ty Waterman, SABR board of directors; request re simulation league.

Kerry Keene, Where Ichiro ranks among the greatest hitters.

Rick Harris, Newport baseball team.

Mark Kanter, The physics of hitting and pitching.

Richard Fabbri, Pitching in the 2014 World Series.

Bill Nowlin, Tom Yawkey.

We have a few media guides courtesy of the Red Sox. Not too many, so if you want

one, take it early.

Once again, if you plan to attend, send me an RSVP ( We

need an accurate count for the food people.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Len Levin

This event will be from 11 am to 4 pm at St. Philip’s Parish Center, 622 Putnam Pike, Greenville, RI 02828
