  • SABR and The Sporting News

    I'm thinking of joining The Society of American Baseball Research (SABR). Doing joining SABR include access to the SPorting News Archives? According to the SABR website by joining one gets t he following:

    Why join SABR? Here are some benefits of membership:

    Two issues of the Baseball Research Journal, which includes articles on history, biography, statistics, personalities, book reviews, and other aspects of the game.
    One issue of The National Pastime, which focuses on baseball in the region where that year's national convention is held (in 2013, it’s Philadelphia)
    "This Week in SABR" e-newsletters every Fridays, with the latest goings-on in SABR and highlighting SABR members' research
    Steep discounts to all of the new e-books we publish through the SABR Digital Library
    Regional chapter meetings, which can include guest speakers, presentations and trips to ballgames
    Online access to back issues of The Sporting News and other periodicals through Paper of Record
    Access to SABR's lending library and other research resources
    Online member directory to connect you with an international network of passionate baseball experts and fans
    Discount on registration to our annual conferences and National Convention
    Access to SABR-L, an e-mail discussion list of baseball questions and answers that many feel is worth the cost of membership itself
    The opportunity to be part of a passionate international community of baseball fans

    I thought Paper or Record no longer exists?

    To answer your Sporting News question, yes it does include access to the archive and paperof That, along with the 2 periodicals SABR puts out each year is more than worth the membership price. Sometimes the site goes down but it usually gets back up fairly
