Chapter News & Notes

1

Good morning, SABR Friends.  Here's the latest in Chapter news and notes.  Please read and Mark your 
calendar.... 
 
PRESENTING OLD SANDBAGS WITH HIS BOOK 
6 contributors to the Sandlock book will present the tome to Mike on March 19 at 
Innis Ardens.  Due to club restrictions, this gathering can't be opened up to 
all members I regret to say.  If Mike is up to it, He will sign copies of the 
book and adhesive book plates for our chapter members. 
 
SANDLOCK BOOK SALES TO DATE 
We have sold 26 copies directly as a chapter at $10 each.  Each book costs us 
$9.15 to publish so it's important to try to sell all 100 copies initially 
printed. 
 
18 copies have sold so far on Amazon. (Print on Demand.) The chapter makes $5 on 
each book.  I send a royalty report to Steve, Stan and Alan weekly. 
 
Purchasing a book directly from the chapter is $6 cheaper than buying on Amazon. 
 
If you would like to buy a book please email me and I will send you the details. 
 
BREAKFAST ON MARCH 26 
Our next breakfast will be at 10 AM on March 26 at the Hamden Town House.   Join 
in for good fellowship and lively baseball conversation.  Beyond this specific 
breakfast, we want to  identify potential alternate breakfast sites because 
attendance at the breakfasts exceeds how much space the Town House can offer.  
Please email me with suggestions about a different breakfast site if you have 
one.  We  want to stay centrally located and have a back or side room and an 
affordable menu. 
 
THE WOOD PILE 
The news budget for the summer edition of TWP tentatively includes trivia, book 
news, a book review, a piece on Mickey Mantle's 1956  TC/MVP season, the HOF 
case for  Harlond Clift, a conversation with Bill MacLeod, Dinner with Jim 
Bouton and other features.  More is needed.  Please let me know what you may be 
interested in contributing to TWP.  All submissions are needed by July 1. 
 
 
HANO! A DOCUMENTARY SCREENING, JUNE 18 
There will be a chapter screening of HANO! A Century In The Bleachers at 10 AM 
at Middlesex Community College in Middletown.   The screening will be followed 
by a Q&A with the filmmaker, Jon Leonoudakis.  Coffee, Decaf, water and 
munchkins will be available. 
 
You can purchase a DVD of the film for $20 plus shipping at www.hanodoc.com.  A 
limited autographed bundle is available, too, and it includes the film DVD and a 
copy of the book, A Day In The Bleachers, signed by Arnold Hano.  The bundle is 
$50.  If you are interested in the bundle please email me at kcicitto@cox.net.  
I'll set up a group shipment to minimize shipping expenses for all. 
 
Have a wonderful week and GO HUSKIES! 
 
Best, 
 
Karl
