Chapman: Washington State students to present their ‘case’ at SABR Analytics Conference

From C. Brandon Chapman at Washington State University on February 21, 2019:

A group of four Washington State University students will take part in a competition at the SABR Analytics Conference in Phoenix on March 8-10.

While it’s the eight annual conference for the Society of American Baseball Research, co-sponsored by Major League Baseball, it’s the first conference of its kind for this WSU group, made up of three sport management students from the College of Education, and one mechanical engineering student from the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture.

The quartet, helped by a financial travel gift from the sport management program, will take part in the Diamond Dollars Case Competition, where they will receive an issue or challenge from SABR president Vince Gennaro, that might be similar to what an actual baseball general manager and their staff my face over the course of a season.
