SABR Chicago, Schaumburg Boomers outing

June 9th, 2012

On a warm June Saturday evening, five Chicago SABR Chapter members took in a Schaumburg Boomers game, enjoyed hearty conversation about the upcoming SABR convention, and remembered back to the days when the Boomers were the Flyers and the scoreboard was operated by hand. The Boomers, members of the Frontier League, edged out the 1st Place River City Rascals by a 6 to 5 score in front of an inflated “cancer survivors night” crowd. Sitting down the third base line, the SABR members included a member of the Milwaukee Chapter as well as a National Convention intern. The food was good, the conversation was lively, and a great time was had by all!
