In August, Boston University will play host to Saberseminar 2014: Sabermetrics, Scouting, and the Science of Baseball -- the annual gathering of MLB execs and analysts in which partipants talk baseball and raise money for the Jimmy Fund.

Among this year's headline guests will be Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, architect of the reigning champs, and Astros GM Jeff Luhnow, overseer of one of the boldest rebuilding projects in recent baseball history, as well as former MLB pitcher Brian Bannister.

The details:

Plan to join us on August 16 and 17, 2014 at Boston University's Metcalf Science Center and enjoy the edge that professional scouting, science, and sabermetrics will give you at your next fantasy or real-life baseball game.

During this event, you will grasp how science is blended with advanced baseball statistics and traditional scouting assessments to produce outstanding results for teams. Don't miss this special opportunity to learn about the deeper game of baseball from insiders and pros, meet people who love the game, and help the Jimmy Fund.

Summary: Compelling subject matter, fun time, most worthy cause.

Tickets are available now, and best of all 100 percent of ticket sales go benefit the aforementioned Jimmy Fund, the longtime Red Sox-affiliated charity devoted to fighting cancer.
