Saberseminar 2014: Tickets Now Available

FanGraphs is proud to be the keynote sponsor of this year’s Saberseminar: Sabermetrics, Scouting, and the Science of Baseball. The weekend event takes place in Boston on August 16th and 17th, and the line-up is already looking pretty fantastic. Confirmed speakers include Astros GM Jeff Luhnow, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington and analyst Tom Tippett, physicist Alan Nathan, SABR President Vince Gennaro, noted analysts Mitchel Lichtman, Dan Brooks, Harry Pavlidis, and others, including Matt Swartz and myself representing FanGraphs.

The event is always a great time, with lots of really interesting presentations and a lot of fantastic people. Even better, however, is that the event is put on entirely as a fundraiser, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Jimmy Fund. Every speaker donates their time and travel costs, and the entire event is put on with the goal of raising as much money for cancer research as possible. So, not only do you get to spend a few days hanging out with other baseball nerds, you get to do so while also helping save lives. It’s a win-win.

Tickets for the weekend start at $140 (and are only $65 if you’re a student, which is an incredible deal), and can be purchased now from their website. If you’re anywhere near the Boston area that weekend, you should absolutely buy a ticket. If you’re not near the Boston area, you should consider coming anyway. It’s a great event, and I couldn’t endorse it any stronger.

I hope to see you guys there.

    “…noted analyst Mitchel Lichtmans..” I can confirm that, thankfully, there is only one Mitchel Lichtman…

    Dave – Are these tickets general admission? Can’t find that on the website. I want to bring a couple of my friends with me.

    Dave: My 18 year old nephew wants to be a baseball gm. Lives in Jersey and works for Camden River Sharks as intern and goes to college. Would this be a good event for him to attend? If so, maybe I can talk his parents into paying for his hotel. Your input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

      It is a great place to network and meet like minded people, AKA nerdy baseball fans. And honestly, that is really the most important part. It is a humbling event and one where we all come to together to learn from the experts and each-other.

      Especially if he wants to be a GM. Nothing is more important than networking because as in baseball as most other industries, nothing is more important than making a name for your self and knowing a lot of people.

      Most FO jobs are landed because Joe who works in Front Office X knows you and likes your work, not because you have a sterling resume.
