Creating a New Stat

Saturday, February 24 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Bill Walsh Room

Our panelists have created statistics that have revolutionized their respective sport: measuring a pitcher’s effectiveness, a MLB player’s above average value, a NBA player’s efficiency, and in-game NFL win probabilities. This panel will draw upon these past examples to predict where, when, and how the next breakthrough stat will make its impact.
