Rocky Mountain SABR 2008 Hot Stove Meeting

For anyone in the Denver and surrounding area you'll be interested to learn that the next meeting of the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research will be held Saturday January 26, 2008. The public is welcome and if you want to know what to expect you can take a look at last year's minutes.

We'll kick off at 10:00 AM at Jackson's All-American Grill directly across the street from Coors Field at 20th and Blake in downtown Denver.

Our featured speaker will be Jeff Bridich, the Rockies' Director of Baseball Operations. Jeff is Harvard alumnus and was a catcher and outfielder on the Harvard baseball team serving as a tri-captain in his 2000 senior year. He formerly worked in the Office of the Commissioner for Major League Baseball where he worked closely with teams facilitating, reviewing and approving minor league contracts and transactions. Jeff became the Rockies Director of Minor League Operations in 2004 before being promoted to his current position in October of 2005.

In addition RMSABR member Dave Wallack will lead-off with some trivia and members Dan Fox and Neal Williams will present their article on third base coaches titled "The Traffic Directors" that will appear in the next edition of SABR's Baseball Research Journal due to be published this month.

Please join us for what will certainly be a stimulating morning of baseball discussion.
