Join us for this month’s edition of the Gabelli School Speaker Series, the business school’s monthly lecture series that welcomes visionaries, thought leaders, and executives from many corners of the business world to campus.
Our April event will feature a panel conversation between Jay Jaffe, Sports Illustrated writer, author of of the upcoming book The Cooperstown Casebook on the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the inventor of the JAWS Statistic, and Mike Petriello, stat analyst for Major League Baseball’s MLB.com. In this talk moderated by Travis Petersen, MA ’15, there will be an in-depth dive into the evolution and future of Sabermetrics and how they have an impact on player evaluation, team success, and even the Hall of Fame.
