Talking Baseball: Engineering, Math, Science, and the ERA
From the time of “scientific baseball” in the early 1900’s to the application of “moneyball” today, baseball has been closely linked to applications in engineering, science, and math. Such diverse fields as statistical analysis and optimization, ergonomics, material science, as well as organizational behavior and management theory all apply to baseball. This presentation explores several of these applications from both historical and contemporary points of view. It may change how you watch and think about baseball!
