This brief post about Sabermetrics Day on June 19th at Richmond County Bank Ballpark — home of the Yankees’ New York-Penn League affiliate in Staten Island — is designed to apprise the public of certain, possibly useful information.

First, one finds that the Staten Island Yankees have recently announced the participants in the Q&A Panel scheduled to occur from 2:00 to 3:30pm. From the club’s press release:

That same press release carries a combination of bad and also good news for those interested in gaining access to the event. Once again, from the communiqué de presse:
