Baseball Analytics: The Next Frontier presented by SABR

Given the enormous head start that baseball had over its peers in the field of analytics, one might think the returns on new research would be diminishing toward zero. However, that’s not the case: the inflow of data is continuous and teams continue to seek innovative new ways to exploit every advantage from every piece of available data. This panel will ask front office executives, analysts and experts on the game’s latest technology where the next frontiers of baseball analytics lie. The discussion will focus on what those in the game wish they had and what those on the sidelines can expect to deliver to uncover the game’s remaining mysteries. Topics will cover both on-field issues, for example the latest advances in visual tracking, and off-field issues, such as the controversial research trying to quantify alleged intangibles and clubhouse chemistry.
