Grand Slam or Strikeout? Using Baseball to Make Smarter Judgments in Life
A CMU Faculty Webinar
Christopher Phillips, Associate Professor of History, Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Off the diamond of every baseball team, there are two schools of thought for how to field the next World Series Champions — scouts versus scorers.

This rivalry, popularized in the book and film “Moneyball,” illustrates a supposed conflict between those who evaluate a player’s body and those who employ numerical analysis.

Prepare for Opening Day by joining CMU professor Christopher Phillips for a closer look at baseball’s revealing history of similarities between scouts and scorers and learn how their judgment techniques can provide insights into how people make judgments in many areas of life.
