What Is SABR?

SABR (Society for American Baseball Research) is a national organization of 7,000 plus members who are dedicated to the history of the national pastime. While the emphasis is on baseball research and the preservation of the games history, SABR is not just about numbers. It’s about enjoying the sport, sharing stories and recollections, and being with like-minded individuals, men and women, who have a passion for baseball at every level of the game. Check us out and join the team.

Houston Baseball History

While Houston has had a presence in Major League Baseball for nearly a half century, the game’s history in the Bayou City dates back to the Civil War. With teams as diversely and uniquely named as the Stonewalls, Babies, Buffs and Colt .45s, Houston’s rich baseball legacy is of keen interest to members of the local SABR chapter.
