The Spirit of Spira

Friend of FAFIF Matt Silverman [1] reminds us it’s the time of the offseason to solicit entries for the Greg Spira Baseball Research Award [2]. 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 [3], 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 [4]. The deadline for entry is February 15. Please look into it and tell anybody you might think would be interested about it. Thank you.
