Sports Analytics in Practice with R Ted Kwartler
Sports Analytics in Practice with RA practical guide for those looking to employ the latest and leading analytical software in sportIn the last twenty years, sports organizations have become a data-driven business. Before this, most decisions in sports were qualitatively driven by subject-matter experts. In the years since numerous teams found success with “Money Ball” analytical perspectives, the industry has sought to advance its analytical acumen to improve on- and off-field outcomes. The increasing demand for data to inform decisions for coaches, scouts, and players before and during sporting events has led to intriguing efforts to build upon this quantitative approach. As this methodology for assessing performance has matured and grown in importance, so too has the open-source R software emerged as one of the leading analytical software packages. In fact, R is a top 10 programming language that is useful in academia and industry for statistics, machine learning, and rapid prototyping. Sports Analytics in Practice with R neatly marries these two advances to teach basic analytics for sports-related use—from cricket to baseball, from basketball to tennis, from soccer to sports gambling, and more.
