[editor's note, by jbox]Jonah asked us to post this event, in case anybody is interestedHi, Jonah Keri here from Baseball Prospectus... hoping you can also lend a hand.
Anyway, we have a great double dip planned, and I'm hoping you can spread the word to readers of your blog. On Sunday, March 5, both Kevin Towers and Bill Bavasi will be co-hosting a pre-game chat before the M's-Padres game that afternoon in Peoria, AZ. Festivities start at 10 am, after which we'll also have autographed copies of BP's two new books, the BP2006 annual and Baseball Between the Numbers (which I had to good fortune to edit/shepherd available for sale).
Admission to the pre-game event is free--basically people need only to buy a ticket to that day's game. BP will be making charitable contributions to Pads and M's charities as well.
Anyway, I was hoping you could post a notice of the event. It happens in 10 days, so if you'd be willing to get this up in the near future, that
would be hugely appreciated. People need only click here:http://www.baseballprospectus.com/events/#ari
...and they'll be able to RSVP for as many spots as they want. Game tickets will be released to us next week, and after that we'll be good to go.
Please let me know if you'd be able to post this. In addition to Towers and Bavasi, I'll be there along with BP's Joe Sheehan, plus about half of
the LABR experts fantasy league, including guys from USA Today, ESPN etc. Hopefully you can make it out as well.
