The next Larry Dierker Chapter meeting is open to anyone who is interested in all aspects of baseball! Those interested can join us in-person at the Spaghetti Western on 1608 Shepherd Drive in Houston or via Zoom.

Our regularly scheduled chapter meetings are once a month on the third Monday of the month at the Spaghetti Western Restaurant located at 1608 Shepherd Drive just south of I-10 in Houston at 7:00 pm CST. If the Astros are playing a home game that evening, we schedule the meetings for another day usually the Monday before or after.  

Anyone interested in attending our next SABR meeting, should reach out to chapter President Joe Thompson, President Emeritus Bob Dorrill or any of the other staff members. For our contact information please select the “About” button at the top of the page.

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.

The chapter is always looking for new research projects and researchers. If you have an idea of what you would like us to look into for you and/or if you would like to join a research project, please let us know. 

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.
