Distinguished Speaker Series Lucheon with Bill James - The man behind the "Moneyball" Sabermetrics
Posted: 2/20/17 10:44 AM
Welcomes Bill James, Writer, Historian and Statistician.
James is a prominent author on the subject of baseball from a statistical perspective. Though not a statistician by trade, he pioneered the field of saber metrics with his insightful, articulate, creative, knowledgeable, occasionally comical and always idiosyncratic writings on a plethora of baseball-related subjects. He is credited with coining the term sabermetrics, and is considered by most to be the father of the sabermetric movement. While many subsequent authors have refined and expounded upon James' theories, which often lacked citation and statistical rigor, it would be hard to argue that anyone has done more than James to advance the field of sabermetrics. He is currently employed by the Boston Red Sox as a Senior Baseball Operations Advisor.
