So you may have heard a few rumblings about BP trying to put together a little spring training gathering. Well the rumors are true!
On Saturday, March 17 at 6:00 PM, Baseball Prospectus will be hosting "Beer, BBQ & Baseball" at Jason Parks' spring training rental home in Surprise, Arizona. Those scheduled to attend include Jason Parks (of course), Patricia, Kevin Goldstein, Jay Jaffe, Derek Carty, Geoff Young, Daniel Rathman, Joe Hamrahi (me), Cory Schwartz from MLB.com, Gary Gillette from SABR, Jason Cole from Lone Star Dugout, Jorge Arangure from ESPN the Magazine, Jeff Passan from Yahoo! Sports, and heralded baseball analyst, Voros McCracken. There's always the possibility that more industry people will join us as well.
This very casual and intimate event will include fine beer selected by Jay Jaffe, top choice meats grilled by the two Jasons, and plenty of prospect, fantasy, JAWS, and DIPS talk from your expert hosts. And it's all FREE! That's right, the entire event will be sponsored by Baseball Prospectus, meaning nobody has to pay.
The catch? Well, there is a limit to the amount of people we can fit comfortably into Jason's house. If you live in the Phoenix area, are in town for spring training, or will be looking for something to do at the conclusion of the SABR Analytics Conference (March 15-17) and would like to attend this once in a lifetime event, you must email me at email@example.com by Tuesday, March 14 to reserve your spot. We will accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis, and once we reach 25-30 guests, the event will be closed.
So don't waste any time. Take your place in line now for what promises to be a fun and exciting night with Baseball Prospectus!
