Consistency is essential not only to avoid ambiguity in published materials, but for the sake of professionalism and quality. SABR members pride themselves on getting all the s right; this document will hopefully see to it they get all the letters and punctuation right, as well. We may be using terms and acronyms — as well as coining new words and expressions — that will not yet have reached mainstream dictionaries, style guides, or usage guides.

We may even be correcting incorrect usages which have crept into other reference books. There are many style guides and glossaries to choose from out there, and most are silent when it comes to baseball-specific terms and usage. The two style guides most people tend to be familiar with if they are familiar with any at all are the Chicago Manual of Style and the AP Stylebook.

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. The AP Stylebook specifies some sports terminology and usage, for use by newspaper beat writers and their editors. AP abbreviates all months, for example, to take up as little space as possible in a printed newspaper column. That rule obviously would not serve academic writing Cooperstown swinger 37 text call historical research terribly well. Readability is very important to SABR publications. To ensure maximum ease of comprehension on the part of the readers of any SABR journal or publication, despite the often intellectually challenging content, we stick with the Chicago Manual of Style.

Of course, there are many contradictory rules in punctuation and usage that can be argued. Both writers and readers the vast majority of whom are from the United States objected to this as something they were not used to. I believe the European date style caused more than its share of consternation among editors who had to change all the incorrect instances and proofreaders some of whom could not believe that was the rule.

In the end I asked myself and others what the rationale for using the European date format could be.

The only rationale I heard that had any weight was that it removed one comma from bibliographic listings, which are already comma-heavy. Weighed against readers who found it annoying and difficult to parse, writers who found it unusual and difficult to remember, and editors who have better things to worry about, I decided we should return to American date format. Besides, the Chicago Manual of Style —which is our arbiter for nearly all non-baseball specific issues—uses the American style.

If our aim is consistency, then conforming to Chicago is another excellent reason to return to American-style dates. Sharp-eyed users have pointed out places where this guide had contradicted itself. I hope we have excised those at this point, without introducing new ones. One final bit of introduction before the material begins.

Please check with the Publications Director for those PubDir sabr. There is, of course, no single correct way to use a reference like this. Spoken language is always morphing and changing. The language of baseball evolves from a spoken vernacular used by players, coaches, and broadcasters, but it is our job as editors to fix what orthodoxy we can into the written expression of those words and phrases.

These days it is one.

Home run is two words, and I expect it to remain two words throughout my lifetime, if this guide is used as intended. Suggestions for changes, additions, arguments in favor of or against usage, et cetera are welcomed via at PubDir sabr. Any style sheet should be considered a work in progress. Style rules follow the Chicago Manual of Style16th edition. Grammar rules follow Words into Type3rd edition. Abbreviations for baseball terms do not require periods.

LH is acceptable for left-handed pitcher in tables and lists. Otherwise, please spell out the words. Righty and lefty are okay, though a bit slangy. WS is acceptable for World Series. For the first time used in an article it should be spelled out as World Series.

WP is not acceptable for winning pitcher, and LP is not acceptable for losing pitcher, except in lists or tables. SABR acronyms for formulae: These need to be simply defined with guidelines on when the definition needs to be stated.

For addresses, the postal-code form for states may be used in text: Charlotte, NC. Though always preferable to spell out country names in order to avoid confusion, one may use with discretion the two-letter abbreviations for countries set by the International Organization for Standardization ISO.

Examples of these are:.

If using a list of bibliographic references at the end, use the bibliography style found in Chicago as well. A quick guide:. Lowenfish, Lee. New York: Da Capo Press, Chapters: Author last name, first name. City: publisher, year, s. James, Bill. New York: Doubleday, Stengel, Casey.

Douglass Wallop. Boston: Beacon Press, For periodicals: Author last name, first name. Chamberlain, Ryan. For multiple authors: first author last name, first name. Subsequent authors first name last name. Separate all elements by commas. Do not the bibliography citations. They should be in alphabetical order by author. If there is no clear author, as in many large encyclopedias, list by title. Following a colon, the first word is capitalized if it begins what by itself stands as a grammatically complete sentence.

If the phrase following the colon is not a full sentence, the first word is never capitalized, unless it is a proper noun. Commissioner Bowie Kuhn is a title, but the commissioner Bowie Kuhn lowercase. The only President capped all the time is the President of the United States, not those of a team or league.

Caps should be used for the World Series and the Series, but not world championship. Games in the World Series are uppercase: e. Derivations of the South are capitalized: Southerner, Southern. The same is true of the North, East, and South. The word player is not capped.
