Ozzie introduces himself at SABR luncheon

DENVER -- Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was a guest Saturday at a lunch meeting of Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), which was held at a restaurant close to Coors Field.

"I'm glad I did it," Guillen said. "It was fun. I think mostly they wanted to know who Ozzie is."

The manager said he spoke to the gathering about his background and his experience in the game for over an hour, and he took questions that were sometimes tough, he said. The answers were honest.

"I like when people in this age like to talk about baseball," Guillen said. "We let the people who love baseball get the chance to know us better, and I think that's great. Great opportunity for both. A lot of people out there, they don't know who I am."
