BU Hosts Science of Baseball Conference

August 09, 2012

On August 4 & 5, 2012 the Physics Department and the Center for Neuroscience hosted Sabermetrics, Scouting and the Science of Baseball, an annual seminar to benefit the Jimmy Fund. Registrants got up close with some of baseball’s top coaches, statisticians, scouts, doctors, and scientists to learn how science, advanced baseball statistics, and traditional scouting assessments come together to drive America's favorite pastime. BU Physics Professor Sid Redner and PhD alum Alex Peterson were speakers at the event, which raised over $16,000 and was covered by the Boston Herald and MLB.com.
