A beloved member of the baseball community and a SABR member since 2019, Langs graduated from the University of Chicago before beginning her career as a researcher at ESPN. Her work and regular appearances on Baseball Tonight led to a role as a writer and popular on-air contributor for Major League Baseball. In 2021 she was diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and has since become a leading advocate for ALS research.
