Welcome to SABR's Larry Dierker Chapter

SABR (Society for American Baseball Research) is a national organization of 7,000 plus members who are dedicated to the history of the national pastime. While the emphasis is on baseball research and the preservation of the games history, SABR is not just about numbers. It’s about enjoying the sport, sharing information and being with likeminded individuals who have a passion for baseball at every level.

Many members of SABR find themselves focusing on individual interests and enhancing their areas of expertise by joining various SABR committees; such as those dedicated to ballparks, player biographies, spring training, umpires and rules, baseball scouts or the Negro Leagues to name a few. In addition most SABRites join one of the more than 50 regional chapters around the country and world and many members attend the annual SABR convention held during the summer.

Our chapter, named for former Houston Astros player, manager, and broadcaster Larry Dierker (left in photo above with fellow chapter members Dave Raymond, Astros broadcaster, and Baseball Hall of Famer Monte Irvin), meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month from September to June beginning at 7 p.m. We also attend at least one Houston Astros home game annually held in conjunction with a pregame chapter meeting. In addition, we participate in the annual Houston Baseball Dinner.

Other chapter activities include the sponsorship of an 1860 Vintage Baseball Team, named for the first professional baseball team in Houston, The Houston Babies, and assisting SABR members throughout the country with research requests.

Members of The Larry Dierker Chapter include baseball executives, former players, former and current Astros broadcasters, a player agent and more. It also includes baseball fans who simply love the game and want to learn more about its legends, lore and history.
