Im taking Stats 101 in college right now, and have been tasked with completing a project on statistics. Our professor said we can do a topic in sports, so I was wondering if any of you guys could help me come up with a good question that merited statistical analysis.
Some thoughts I had included:
- Is it better to pitch to Albert Pujols with the bases loaded, or walk him?
- Does total payroll correlate with winning percentage?
- Are you more likely to make an out if you take the first pitch?
Any ideas you guys have would be much appreciated (they don't have to be unique), and if you guys could point me towards a place where I could find some of these statistics, it would also be a big help. Thanks so much, and I promise to share the results of my project when I'm done!
