Testimonials

“The SABR Analytics Conference was a great environment for meeting my future boss with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The grad program allowed us to compete at the Diamond Dollars Case Competition. It was all about developing skills and applying them to your work.”

“For me, the SABR Analytics Conference was a start of me being able to pursue a career in professional baseball. During my four days there, I was able to meet many MLB employees and executives, listen to different panels and presentations, and meet others just like myself seeking to enter the industry. Today, I am still good friends with lots of people from that group, many of whom are working in the industry. The networking opportunities were tremendous because I was able to start and build my own network within the industry.”
