FanGraphs and Pitch Talks in Chicago on Thursday

All summer, we’ve been partnering with Pitch Talks to tour the country and be part of their great baseball events, and this Thursday, we’re bringing the party to Chicago. Specifically, we’re coming to The Metro, which is a stone’s throw from Wrigley Field, with a lineup that you definitely don’t want to miss.


Craig Edwards and I will be representing FanGraphs at the event, and we’ll share a panel with Jonah Keri, Rob Arthur, Harry Pavlidis, and Rany Jazayerli. The following panel will feature a group of writers from The Athletic along with local scribes Dan Hayes and Cat Garcia, and then Jonah will host a live version of his podcast with broadcasters Len Kasper and Jason Benetti.

It should be a great time. We had a blast at the events in Boston and San Francisco the last few months, and we’re excited to talk Cubs and White Sox with a bunch of you on Thursday night. You definitely don’t want to miss out if you’re around.

The show starts at 7:30, but doors open at 7:00, and it’s probably worth getting there early. You can buy tickets in advance for $26 each, or pick them up at the door for $28. We’ve had a blast with the Pitch Talks crew all summer, and this event promises to be just as fun, so come hang out with us on Thursday night; you won’t regret it.
