Gooood mornin’, Old Timers! I’ve shifted our Facebook page to this here blog for easy access and it should, if I get this right, make it easier for all of us to write and scream at each other.

We lost Old Timer Bill Gleason on Sunday, January 3rd. Bill’s career as a sports writer was highlighted by his strong personality and terrific demeanor among THE SPORTSWRITERS on TV as well as his numerous turns as MC at our reunions. It was only due to health that Bill did not attend our recent banquets and we will miss him, but have great memories of his sharp wit and straight-up humor.

BASEBALL DIGEST has changed its format for the first time since its inception back in the stone age. Same look, same bunch and not a bad thing at all. I say this with great respect: It is required reading in most washrooms including our club’s dugout in Norridge.

I’m lookin’ at group tickets for the sox and the Cubs. I’ll post dates that we can get and get ’em. Let’s spend more this year and ramp up the game attendance. I know that a lot of you members go for those single-digit tickets early in the season, but personally, I kinda favor any date with sunshine and/or temperatures over 65.

SABR meets at the truly magnificent Eisenhower Public Library in Harwood Heights on Saturday, Feb. 13th at 1pm. Free, just meet upstairs.
