SABR

List of Oral History Interviews

The Oral History Committee has compiled a list of interviews with ballplayers (Majors, Minors, Negro Leaguers, AAGBBL), executives, scouts, authors, writers, broadcasters and fans. 

These tapes and transcripts are for research and/or private listening for SABR members only. They may not be used for commercial purposes—in whole or in part—without the express written consent of the Executive Director of the Society for American Baseball Research.  

Many interviews are available to SABR members as downloadable audio files in .mp3 format. Others, not listed here, are recorded on audio cassette tapes or CDs. (Note: We are attempting to digitize this collection into a more accessible electronic format. During this process, some interviews listed here may be temporarily unavailable.)

To request an interview in MP3 format, please contact Jacob Pomrenke. Here is the list currently available:
