The Society for American Baseball
Research (SABR) was founded in August
1971 in Cooperstown, New York. It currently has approximately 6,000 members worldwide. Although SABR is headquartered
in Phoenix, Arizona, the backbone of SABR is its network of regional chapters where members gather to share their research
interests and bond with other baseball enthusiasts. The Magnolia Chapter
- named in honor of the magnolia tree that once dominated the centerfield skyline at Ponce De Leon Park, home of the old Atlanta
Crackers - serves SABR members in Georgia. Members from other nearby states, as well as non-members with an interest
in baseball history, are welcome to participate in Chapter activities.
SABR's mission is three-fold:
- To encourage the study of baseball,
past and present, as a significant athletic and social institution;
- To encourage further research
and literary efforts to establish an accurate historical record of baseball, and;
- To help disseminate educational,
historical and research information about the National Pastime.
