About

Pomrenke-2016On most days, you’ll find me at the Society for American Baseball Research’s national office in Phoenix, where I work as SABR’s Director of Editorial Content. I handle all communications for the SABR office, manage editorial content for SABR.org, design and produce the popular “This Week in SABR” newsletter, and field media requests and baseball research questions.

I’ve been an active, dues-paying SABR member since 1998 and I also serve as the chairman and newsletter editor for the Black Sox Scandal Research Committee. (That should explain my Twitter handle.) In 2015, I was the lead editor for the SABR BioProject book Scandal on the South Side: The 1919 Chicago White Sox. I moderated a panel discussion on Shoeless Joe Jackson at the 2010 SABR Convention in Atlanta and a panel commemorating the 50th anniversary of Eight Men Out at the 2013 SABR Convention in Philadelphia, and appeared on an MLB Network special, “Triumph and Tragedy,” about the Black Sox Scandal that still re-airs from time to time.

My articles on baseball history appear regularly at The National Pastime Museum, in the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Memories and Dreams magazine, and other places.

Before I joined the SABR staff in 2011, I spent 10 years in journalism, bouncing around as a reporter, page designer, and editor at the North County Times and San Bernardino Sun newspapers in California, and The Times in my hometown of Gainesville, Georgia. I now live in Scottsdale, Arizona, with my roller derby queen, Tracy Greer, and our Deadball Era cats, Nixey Callahan and Bones Ely.
