Statistical Analysis Research Committee



Welcome to the Statistical Analysis Committee!

The committee's initial members — Pete Palmer, Bill James and Dick Cramer — began it in 1974 to encourage the exchange of research and analysis. Another focus for the committee is the study of various empirical evaluations in use and in development.

The committee provides a major communications link for researchers in the field. Activities include annual analyses of Hall of Fame candidates and of rookie performances.
