As a SABR member, I get SABR notes in my email every Friday. Some of the notes are of general interest to fans, other notes are of such a specialized nature that they matter only to a select few.
According to my most recent note, SABR is launching The 19th Century Graves Marker Project. Many of the founders, pioneers, and early players of the game were buried without headstones. Others have their headstones in great disrepair. The project is designed to remedy that situation by refurbishing existing headstones or purchasing ones where none exist. It is similar to the Negro Leagues Graves Marker Project about which I’ve written before. I’ll be contributing.
Let me take a moment and ask you to consider lending at least moral support for this project. If you have knowledge or expertise you can also help. The men who began this great game deserve at least to be remembered in their final resting place.
