David Vincent, Secretary and original Board member of Retrosheet, Inc.,
passed away on July 2, 2017.
His contributions to Retrosheet and baseball research are incredibly
great. They include the home run database for which he was known as "Dr.
Longball," lists of replays and ejections, information and insights
about umpires, among others. Our reserach page contains a small sample
of his work. More importantly, he was unstinting in his support of those
doing baseball research by gladly providing data and insights when
asked. For these contributions and more he was honored with SABR's Bob
Davids Award, the highest honor the organization can bestow. His loss is
an enormous blow to Retrosheet, the baseball research community, and he
will be missed by many.
