“We have been in discussions with Bloomberg Sports for several months and are very excited to announce a partnership,” said Marc Appleman, Executive Director of SABR. “Bloomberg Sports is a powerful brand that provides passionate baseball fans with unique tools. This partnership will offer SABR members a great opportunity to prepare for fantasy drafts, manage their rosters, and follow their favorite teams and players.”

“SABR has set the gold standard in traditional collection and preservation of all aspects of the great game of baseball, and we are proud to work with them to help celebrate the game with all their members,” said Bill Squadron, head of Bloomberg Sports. “Like SABR, we at Bloomberg have developed a gold standard of data analysis for the fantasy baseball player and fans who love the statistical fabric of the game. We are excited to be working together.”

On the second annual SABR Day, January 29, SABR members were able to take advantage of a discount on Bloomberg’s “Front Office 2011,” an online analytical tool that gives fans the ability to follow and analyze statistics and trends of their favorite teams and players.

Launched in 2010, Bloomberg Sports takes the tools developed by Bloomberg, the leading global provider in data and analytics, and applies them to the vast data analysis opportunities in sports. Working with MLB.com and NFL.com, Bloomberg Sports fantasy products give fans the most powerful resources as they draft and manage their fantasy teams. Additionally, Bloomberg Sports provides a professional product that delivers Major League Baseball clubs with a secure, virtually unlimited set of analytical functions to assist them in personnel evaluation and performance matchups.
