SABR announces Chadwick Award winners

Mar 1, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

The Society for American Baseball Research, or SABR as it is best known, on Monday announced the creation of the Henry Chadwick Award and its initial winners. The New York Times’ Alan Schwarz terms it “the Baseball Historian Hall of Fame.”
Lee Allen
Bob Davids
Bill James
Peter Morris
David Neft
Peter Palmer
Lawrence Ritter
Harold Seymour
Jules Tygiel
Of course, James is the name that everyone knows and most should be plenty familiar with the work of Ritter and Neft. The SABR press release goes into detail about the credentials of all nine worthy choices. Maybe that’s a bit much for some, but everyone should check out Schwarz’s blog entry on the subject.
