John Racanelli is a Cubs fan living in La Grange, Illinois. He is actively involved in the Chicago chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), and is also the chair of the SABR Landmarks Research Committee. John shares some great baseball memories, including how he once got to enjoy a beer with Larry Biittner and reminisce about the walk-off homer Biittner hit at John’s first ballgame. We also discuss plenty about SABR, the Landmark Committee’s attempt at curating a comprehensive list of historic baseball sites, and John’s unique hobby of photographing triple peanuts at ballgames.
