Science Night Live: Engineering Baseball: STEM, Management, and the National Pastime

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and management have been used in professional baseball from the time of “scientific baseball” in the early 1900’s to the application of Moneyball, big data analysis, and advanced analytics today. Professional baseball has long been linked to applications in STEM and such diverse fields as statistical analysis and optimization, ergonomics, material science, as well as organizational behavior and management theory. This discussion may change how you watch and think about baseball.
