Take Me Out to the Ball Game….. For Professor Rosenkrantz By Refugio Barrasa IME 301
Why I chose baseball After years of hearing my “brothers” talk about whom was the better pitcher and I wanted to see what the numbers had to say. So who was a better starter and who was a better reliever?
Stevie? Anthony? Guero? My hypothesis is that Stevie and Anthony are better relief pitchers than Guero. I believe that my analysis will find that Guero is a better starter than a reliever.
My Data Collection I took my scorebooks and counted the strikes and balls that were thrown I also counted the number of strike-outs and base on balls that were thrown per inning pitched
Strike Outs vs. Innings Pitched
Base on Balls vs. Inning Pitched
My discoveries Was I right or wrong?
Average of Balls Thrown
Average of Strikes thrown
My Findings Stevie has a wider range of pitches Anthony depends on his fielders to help him through the innings Guero has a good control, but isn’t necessarily the best
Is my hypothesis good? Didn’t prove it right nor wrong Showed that Guero is
