Abstract

It's no secret that professional sports has been a hotbed for the application of analytics in changing age-old business practices and decision making. It has been 15 years since the publication of Michael Lewis’s book Moneyball, and the pace of change continues to accelerate. In this talk, we’ll explore both the pre- and post-Moneyball history of analytics revolutions in baseball right up to the present with the current ways in which the combination of data, software, and technology continues to "break the game."
