NY Event

Dave · August 3, 2010 at 11:02 am · Filed Under Mariners 

Because I know we have some NY readers and not everyone here checks FanGraphs, I figured I’d let you guys know that I’m co-hosting an event in NYC this weekend. In the style of the USSM events we’ve done in Seattle (the next of which should be announced in the next day or two – stay tuned), we’re renting out a hall across from central park and are going to spend three hours talking baseball with a variety of cool people. Here is the full agenda, as written up by David Appelman today.

For those of you who are still making up your minds about whether or not to come to the very first FanGraphs live event in NYC this Saturday, August 7th at 9am, here are the full details:

Location: Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street)

Tickets: $15 online (+$1.36 surcharge). $20 cash only at the door.

NY Baseball (9:00am – 9:40am)

Joe Pawlikowski, Mike Axisa, Benjamin Kabak (All RiverAveBlues.com), Matthew Cerrone (MetsBlog.com), and Mark Simon (ESPN) will be discussing all things baseball in NY. Moderated by Carson Cistulli.

Baseball Media (9:45am – 10:30am)

Jonah Keri (Bloomberg Sports) will host a panel comprised of Will Leitch (Deadspin, New York Magazine), Michael Silverman (Boston Herald), Matthew Cerrone (MetsBlog.com), Alex Speier (WEEI.com), and David Biderman (WSJ) to discuss how baseball media coverage has changed in recent years and will continue to evolve.

Baseball Stats (10:40am – 11:15am)

Jon Sciambi (ESPN), Mitchel Lichtman, Sky Kalkman (Beyond the Boxscore), Dave Cameron, and David Appelman will discuss where advanced baseball stats are right now and where they’ll be headed. Moderated by Carson Cistulli.

Bloomberg Sports Presentation (11:20 – 11:35)

Bloomberg Sports will make a presentation of a brand new product.

FanGraphs Q&A (11:40 – End)

Dave Cameron, Carson Cistulli, Bryan Smith, Joe Pawlikowski, Mike Axisa, and David Appelman will take questions until we’re officially kicked out (a little after 12:00).

Afterparty (3:30pm – Game Over)

Additionally, we’re going to host a game-watching party for attendees to gather at a local watering hole and view that afternoon’s Boston-New York match-up together. Those who make it to the event will be invited to join us for several more hours of fun later in the afternoon. Details and directions will be given at the event.

If you’re in the area, you should come. It’s going to be great.

    I wish I was visiting my in-laws, then sneak out for a few. 🙁

    Too bad I’m going out of town this weekend, I would’ve loved to have made it down from syracuse for the event, hopefully I can get the next one.

    Dang, sounds like a blast!

    Good thing Dave and Will Leitch aren’t on the same panel. It’d set a record for most words spoken in a minute.

    Looks great – too bad I’ll be out of the area. Why oh why couldn’t you have scheduled the event for when the M’s are in town? 21 Aug would have been perfect!
