More than Moneyball Michael Fry, University of Cincinnati & Jeffrey Ohlmann, University of Iowa
Michael Lewis may have created a sensation around sports analytics in his bestseller and the movie starring Brad Pitt, but there's a much bigger story to be told. Interfaces, the INFORMS journal, has published a two-part issue devoted to ways that math modeling can improve performance and the business of sports. The previous issue of the journal was devoted to a range of O.R. sports research and the current issue is devoted to sports scheduling. Listen to co-editors Michael Fry of the University of Cincinnati and Jeffrey Ohlmann of the University of Iowa talk about measuring driving and putting excellence in golf, improving baseball player drafts, why goalies rule, and more.
Please stay on topic, be civil, and be brief.
