The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) has made The Emerald Guide to Baseball 2009 available for download at its web site. The Guide is packed with 586 pages of baseball goodness and it’s FREE!
Thankfully the good folks at SABR decided to pick up the torch dropped by The Sporting News when TSN decided to discontinue its Baseball Guide series after 2006. The Emerald Guide is loaded with information including front office personnel, minor league affiliates, spring rosters, broadcasting teams, 2009 schedules, and leaderboards for every major league team.It's a great read, and it full of fantastic information, and I highly recommend it.
And the best part:
You don’t have to be a member of SABR to obtain a free copy, but if you’re a baseball fan (and since you’re here reading this, I assume you are), you really should consider joining. While you’re chewing on it, you can get your free copy of the 2009 Emerald Guide here.Baseball and free stuff. I'm lovin' it.
