C&P Takes SABR by Storm

ARLINGTON, Va. (January 27, 2007) -- The Chesapeake and Potomac made a strong showing at the annual meeting of the Bob Davids SABR Chapter. Sandwiched between presentations by Curt Flood biographer Brad Snyder and former Ranger and Twin Mike Cubbage, Scott "Rhubarb" Rogers and Richard "Pastime" D'Ambrisi spoke in full uniform about Vintage Base Ball and the Club. Rich "Winfield" Saylor was in attendance as well, carefully disguised to infiltrate the audience in a Brooks Robinson jersey and Brooklyn Dodgers cap.

Several of the SABR members in attendance seemed surprised to have the opportunity to throw vintage baseballs around the room, but the barehanded catching demonstration seemed to be a highlight of the annual meeting. After the presentation, Pastime's display of vintage memorabilia attracted much interest, and several dozen SABR members took away recruiting flyers and tearsheets. Many SABRites expressed interest in the Club's 2007 schedule, as well as learning about Pastime's vintage shoes.

Rhubarb captured the presentation on wax cylinder.
