Tap into the minds and math of playoff baseball with a team of local talent to learn about the rise of analytics in Major League Baseball. SCH is hosting a virtual event for the community: Baseball: The Game of Statistics, on Wednesday, October 26, at 7 PM to discuss how statistics shape decisions, inform players, and translate onto the field.
SCH has pulled an impressive roster of voices in the field of baseball to lead the discussion, with panelists drawn from within the school’s parent and alumni community. Featured panelists include SCH parent Sam Fuld, who is the Phillies general manager and a former major league outfielder. He will be joined by sportscasting legend Dave Sims ’71, a broadcaster for the MLB Seattle Mariners who recently became a Twitter sensation when his narration of the Marnier’s 21-year playoff drought ending went viral. The third panelist is current Phillies scout Mike Koplove ’95, whose own illustrious MLB career as a pitcher included a World Series win with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 and a USA bronze medal in the 2008 Olympics. Vanessa Chan, SCH parent and Penn professor, will moderate the program and take participants on an exciting journey through the world of sabermetrics, the statistics behind baseball’s in-game activity.
The conversation is open to the community. To register to receive the link to the webinar, visit: www.sch.org/connex.
