Rory Costello is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Rory has written many biographies of major-leaguers and other baseball figures for SABR's BioProject website.
He has a lot of interests when it comes to choosing his subjects, but players from Latin American balla and the Caribbean are right up there at the top.
SABR members have a variety of interests, and this is reflected in the diversity of its research committees. There are more than two dozen groups devoted to the study of a specific area related to the game — from Baseball and the Arts to Statistical Analysis to the Deadball Era to Women in Baseball. In addition, many SABR members meet formally and informally in regional chapters throughout the year and hundreds come together for the annual national convention, the organization's premier event. These meetings often include panel discussions with former major league players and research presentations by members. Oct 15, 1986: N.Y. Mets (7) at Houston (6), 16 inn.

"When The Drum Major Died" by Anjulle Floyd
Martin Luther King, Jr. has begun laying out plans for his Poor People’s Campaign. Florina Austin, newly married, spies a woman sitting on the steps leading up to the verandah where Florina and her husband will live. The woman’s uncanny knowledge of the space that Florina will inhabit leaves her suspicious.
The following Sunday after church, Florina witnesses the woman, she has come to know as Agnes, caress Redmond’s cheek. The look in Redmond’s eyes betrays longing. Florina and Agnes are neighbors. Their husbands, Negro doctors in Poinsettia, NC, hold prominent positions in the social and political life of their community. When Agnes flees to Memphis and joins the Sanitation Workers Protests, all are aghast, none more than Florina. As they move towards the fateful day Dr. Martin Luther King is killed, Florina learns that marriage exposes the vulnerabilities of all who pledge their trough and body. It casts an even greater shadow upon the ones who vow love unto death, and do not deliver what they have promised. When the Drum Major Died shows what happens when we resist change in favor of worn out tradition, but also what can and does occur when we open our hearts and embrace the words, “ … be first in love … be first in generosity … He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. …”

Cesar Chavez Community Center Auditorium

Dreamscape depicts the true story of the death and inner life of a young woman, "Myeisha Mills," who dreams through the impact of the twelve bullets that killed her. Through beat-boxing, spoken word and dance, the performance is structured around an autopsy report recited by a dispassionate coroner following the trajectory and impact of the bullets – each one triggering its own unique memory.

Many of us have an idea of what we want to do when we grow up from the time we are small children. Some of us have experiences along the way that inform our future careers. Some of us just graduate from high school and start collge with no idea. Some of us choose majors, some majors are chosen for us by others. Regardless of how it happened, we have a major.
How do you know that major is the right one for you? Have you really stepped back to think about what you enjoy doing and what you would do if no one paid you to do it? What strengths and abilities translate into majors? What is a good fit?
This episode of Tassel to Tassel doesn't have the answers to those questions, but it does have suggestions for how to find them. Tune in to find out how.
While 34 years isn't a ripe old age, former Wunderkind Jess Merl has been redefining the word entrepreneur for many years starting when he launched not one, but two successful businesses.
As a graduate of De La Salle High School, which was made famous in the new movie When the Game Stands Tall, it should probably come as no surprise that Merl's latest endeavor Major League Fantasy, represents his first foray into the tech gaming world.
Of course merely entering the "game" in a competitive market such as fantasy sports leagues would not suffice for Merl. He had to do it differently and, he had to do it better than enyone before him.
With Major League Fantasy it appears he has done just that, in that beyond the industry buzz there is even talk about a reality television show based on his company from the Executive Producer of Undercover Boss and True Tori, Greg Goldman.
Joining me today to talk about Major League Fantasy is Jesse Merl.
Bob Grant visits us again, and it's more than we hoped! Beginning at the 22:00 mark, is a powerful, possibly controversial conversation about Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, the public furor and racisim. Bob's sentiment, thoughts and observations about this current scandal tugging at the NFL are quite insightful and unique. The first segment is a continuation from an earlier episode about the very important discussion and the business of retired NFL players and the recently formed Players Congress, LLC. The work retired players Bob Grant, Marvin Cobb, Woody Campbell, Bruce Jarvis, and several others along with retired players wives Jo Bielskie and Jane Arnett are engaged in is not the main focus of the Real Football Wives program...but should be a part of every conversation regarding the business of NFL retirees. If you have questions not answered here, go to www.playerscongress.com for contact information.
The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?
