The SABR Detroit Chapter will be holding our next meeting on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 from noon-6 p.m. in the Ernie Harwell Room at the Detroit Public Library. See the attached file for full details. Please plan to attend, bring along a friend if you wish, and join us for World Series Game 3 after the program.

The program will feature a panel discussion on the Steroid Era and its impact on the game, as well as presentations on the 2012 AL MVP award, and on historical corrections to Hall of Fame RBI records.

The Harwell Room houses a portion of the extensive collection assembled by Ernie during his broadcast career. From the DPL website:

“The Ernie Harwell Sports Collection began in 1966 when sportscaster Ernie Harwell made his initial donation. It consists of books, team annuals, media guides, programs, scorecards, baseball cards, clippings, photographs, video and audio tapes. Baseball is the principal sport represented. A printed finding aid, available at the reference desk of the Burton Historical Collection, and the library‚Äôs online catalog provide access to the Collection.”
