M1421: Sabermetrics, Scouting, and the Science of Baseball in HSSP Summer 2008 (Jun. 29, 2008)
This course will discuss the most effective metrics used to evaluate offense, defense, and pitching in baseball today. We will also explore the scouting aspect of the game, and what specific things a scout is looking for in a player. Finally, we will investigate the science of baseball from both a biological/kinesiological and a physics perspective. The classes will be taught by multiple instructors, some of whom have worked for, or are currently working for, Major League Baseball teams. You must have a love for the game, and an old ratty baseball cap in order to take this class.
