About the Book

The National Pastime offers baseball history available nowhere else. Each fall this publication from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) explores baseball history with fresh and often surprising views of past players, teams, and events. Drawn from the research efforts of more than 6,700 SABR members, The National Pastime establishes an accurate, lively, and entertaining historical record of baseball.

A Note from the Editor, Mark Alvarez:

Harvey Haddix sadly didn't live to celebrate the 35th anniversary of his great game, but we remember it here with Bill Perry's cover art and Steve Stout's lead article. In this year of the resurgent Indians and the opening of Jacobs Field, we've also got a cluster of Cleveland-related pieces. And four authors have contributed articles that focus on baseball during World War II.

A big part of my job is mixing each issue to make sure we have a good mix of eras, topics, teams, personalities, perspectives, and contributors old and new.

Submissions are way up, and this is the largest National Pastime we've ever published. The Board has voted to allow even larger issues in the future, if material warrants it. It's up to you to make this happen.
