Default Ivor-Campbell killed in an automobile accident

Frederick Ivor-Campbell has died and his wife, Alma, has been seriously injured in an automobile accident in Rhode Island this weekend. They were apparently struck head on by a driver who crossed into their side of the road. Alma will be undergoing surgery for multiple broken bones and other injuries.

Fred was 73, a baseball scholar, winner of SABR's Davids Award, may we offer our thoughts and prayers for their families.

Default sympathy

What a tragedy. It is particularly difficult to hear of the loss of one of our own. My deepest prayers and sympathy go out to the family and friends.
I pray also for the healing/ recovery of his wife.

Very sad news, coming just days after noted Black Sox researcher Gene Carney died unexpectedly.

Fred was a huge presence in the SABR community. What an awful story. My sincere condolences to his family.

Best wishes to the Campbell family.

Collision was actually in Mass, near New Bedford. A group of us were heading to Newport yesterday. Our route would have brought us through that insane stretch on 195. Due to potential t-storms popping up in SE Mass, we diverted to Ptown. We've had more than our share of fatal MVC's in our district this summer. Be diligent, very few drivers out there give a sh!t about you.

Default A rough year for SABR

This is the latest tragedy to hit SABR and another which reminds us that life is very fragile.

Condolonces to the Ivor-Campbell family and may his spirit live on in both SABR researchers and other baseball fans

Other people who left SABR and this life too soon this year include Ron Gabriel. who was a major force in helping to organize and run early regional meetings and Gene Carney who was perhaps the pre-eminent Black Sox Scandal Scholar.

Regards
Rich

I hadn't heard this...I used to subscribe to the Black Sox Newsletter and I used to get emails all the time from Gene...that's a shock.
