A small but enthusastic group of chapter members gathered at Iron Works BBQ on Thursday, December 20 for some baseball talk, barbeque and holiday treats.
A wide-ranging assortment of baseball-related topics were covered including current topics such as the offseason acquistions by the Toronto Blue Jays, the signing of Josh Hamilton by the Angels, the trade of R. A. Dickey by the Mets and the signing of Carlos Pena by the Astros as well as topics from the past such as the Pythagorean W-L record of the ’62 Mets and the one game career of Houston Colt .45 player John Paciorek.
Monte Cely provided copies of the itinerary for the upcoming chapter Winter Meeting. Gilbert Martinez updated the group on potential construction disruptions that may affect the Winter Meeting venue on the Texas State University campus.
A potential group outing to the Rangers – Padres exhibition game in the Alamo Dome in San Antonio scheduled for March 30, 2013 was also discussed. More information will be forthcoming as the date approaches.
The monthly meeting for January will be the annual Winter Meeting. We encourage all chapter members to attend.
Thanks to Monte Cely (more specfically his wife, Linda) for supplying the assortment of desserts for the December meeting.
