Friend of FAFIF Matt Silverman reminds us it’s the time of the offseason to solicit entries for the Greg Spira Baseball Research Award. The award recognizes the “best published article or paper containing original baseball research by a person 30 years old or younger,” which represents an outstanding tribute to Spira, who dedicated much of his all too short life to discovery and dissemination within the sport he loved.
First prize is $1,000, with cash prizes awarded for second and third place as well. Full details on how to submit are here. The deadline for entry is February 15. Please look into it and tell anybody you might think would be interested about it. Thank you.
