In the Diamond Dollars Case Competition, undergraduate, graduate and professional school students from colleges and universities across the country compete against each other by preparing an analysis and presentation of a baseball operations decision — the type of decision a team’s GM and his staff is faced with over the course of a season. The cases are developed by SABR President Vince Gennaro, author of Diamond Dollars: The Economics of Winning in Baseball, and consultant to MLB teams. The Diamond Dollars Case Competition is the first national competition to be based solely on baseball operations issues.

Four- to five-person student teams are asked to evaluate a baseball operations case problem. The student team presents their analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges that includes MLB front office executives.

A record 19 colleges and universities participated in the 2014 Diamond Dollars Case Competition. To learn more about the 2014 Diamond Dollars Case Competition winners, click here. Six alumni from the 2012 and 2013 Diamond Dollars Case Competitions have secured internships or permanent positions within Major League Baseball.
