2018 SABR Research Award Winners


From the Dugouts to the Trenches

Baseball During the Great War

Jim Leeke

From the Award Committee Chair:

“An illuminating and thorough examination of one of the least understood periods of baseball. Rich in context, this book provides badly needed insight into the factors shaping baseball’s survival during the First World War. It is also well-researched and well-written.”



Urban Shocker

Silent Hero of Baseball’s Golden Age

Steve Steinberg

From the Award Committee Chair:

“Biography as it ought to be done. Steinberg takes us inside the life of a man far better appreciated in his own time than he is today. Urban Shocker’s was a life full of struggle, first for deserved recognition and then — when that recognition finally came — for health. The book combines attention to detail with feeling.”



Upward, Not Sunwise

Kimberly Jenkins Marshall

Review from the Journal of Folklore Research:

“…deftly tackles the problem of rupture and continuity among Pentecostal converts.”



When We Were Ghouls

Amy E. Wallen

Praise from San Diego CityBeat:

“With deadpan humor and youthful incredulity, Wallen explores a series of strange events, each more bizarre than the last.”



At the First Table

Jodi Campbell

Review from the Journal of Interdisciplinary History:

“…an immensely useful handbook that shows clearly how food formed part of the web of connections and divisions that structured this world.”
