Beginning to Write for the SABR Games Project

For readers who are not baseball fans, SABR is the Society for American Baseball Research.  I joined a few years ago and became the record keeper for the Games Project.  Members write summaries of games from the inception of baseball in the 19th century until today.  Since I retired, I decided to do more writing for this fine organization.

About a year ago a member wanted to edit a book about significant games in the history of the Mets.  I volunteered to write a few games.  Today the editor sent back my manuscript for the first Subway Series game played on June 16, 1997.  He said he had to be more detailed.  Now I have the time to work on it.

Last week I wrote and submitted a report of the infamous "Pine Tar Game" on July 24, 1983.  I expect the editor to be tough on me.  I guess as I gain experience in this endeavor I will become more proficient.

When I write this blog there is no strict style to follow, but I must adapt to SABR's writing style.
