The Fenway Project
One of the best benefits of being a member of SABR, is that they send along a copy of each book they publish. So far, I've received two or three books, mostly collections of essays on the history of the game.

Yesterday in the mail, I received the latest SABR book, "The Fenway Project." This looks like an interesting book. According to the back cover, "On June 28, 2002, over seven hundred members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) descended on Fenway Park for an interleague contest between the hometown Boston Red Sox and their National League rivals, the former Boston - now Atlanta - Braves. Sixty-four of these avid fans, historians, statisticians, and game enthusiasts recorded their experiences for this book."

So, what we have is a collection off essays from 64 different folks watching the same game. Some from the grandstands, some from the press box, the clubhouse, and behind the famous scoreboard. I'm looking forward to reading this collection.
