Members are invited to submit a proposal to make a research presentation at the meeting. Proposals must be made in writing (e-mail is fine) to Research Committee Chair Stew Thornley, 1082 Lovell Avenue, Roseville, Minnesota 55113-4419, and should include a title and brief outline of what the presentation will consist of with emphasis on the research that will be included. Standard presentations are 20 minutes (with an additional eight minutes for questions) although the duration may be longer or shorter depending on the needs of the presenter and of the schedule. The Research Committee (which also consists of Tom Swift, Dan Levitt, Cary Smith, Bob Tholkes, and Rich Arpi) will finalize the schedule of research presentations by April 30, two weeks before the meeting, so proposals must be submitted by then.
SABR Day in America January 29
Scott now lives in Cohasset, Minnesota, with his wife, Freida, and produces and co-hosts the morning program on KAXE-FM in nearby Grand Rapids. Freida and their daughter, Adele, are hard-core Twins fans, and Adele has a partial season ticket for Twins games. As for Scott, he is more interested in history in general and baseball specifically than statistics. Larry Ritters The Glory of Their Times is his favorite baseball book.
Scott played Little League, high-school, and one year of college and saw hundreds of Cardinals games before graduating from high school in 1967. Some of the highlights he saw included:
Scott shares his June 11 birthday with Ernie Nevers, Roger Bresnahan, Dave Cash, Jose Reyes, Frank (Pirates, Reds, Phillis, Braves, Mets, Cubs et al.) Thomas, Dan Topping, Pop Joy, Tony Suck, Jacques Cousteau, Joe Montana, Jackie Stewart, Vince Lombardi, Richard Loeb, and Greta Van Susteran. Also on June 11 Johnny Vander Meer pitched his first of two consecutive no-hitters in 1938 and Nolan Ryan pitched his sixth no-hitter in 1990.
