Commemorating the one-year anniversary of the creation of the Baseball Industry Network, founders Tyrone Brooks and Chad Capellman are offering you a chance to meet and mingle with other members of the group in Boston, Mass. We purposely planned this for an off-day for the Red Sox in an effort to enable more of Boston's beloved baseball franchise to attend.
Be sure to bring plenty of business cards!
