Going to the SABR 39 convention

Today I am heading up to Our Nation's Capital, where the 39th convention of the Society for American Baseball Research is being held. I look forward to meeting in person many of the leading ballpark experts with whom I have become acquainted over the Internet. After that I head west, stopping in Pittsburgh and perhaps a couple other cities before reaching the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Cubs at Rockies: August 9 or bust! With any luck, I'll see three or more big-league ball games during my journey.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish revisions to the Kauffman Stadium as I had planned. I have plenty of good photos, but that new outfield seating arrangement has an awful lot of weird quirks.
