Summary

Our guest is Rev. Humbert Kilanowski, O.P., a member of the math and computer science faculty who is in his first year at Providence College. Father Humbert has assembled a team of ten students to work with him on a baseball statistics research project, which will form the basis of the group’s work in a research course, Sabermetrics: The Mathematical Analysis of Baseball, next fall. In this podcast, Father describes his research premise, which involves studying Cape Cod League data with an eye toward developing a modified algorithm for the Wins Above Replacement (WAR) statistic. With opening day looming, Father also shares the reasons for his lifelong interest in baseball and baseball statistics, along with his predictions for the upcoming major league season.
