Open Access Honors Program Thesis
Current Major League Baseball contracts are increasing rapidly in value. The factors that increase pay are primarily determined by the team owners' desire to win and players' performance. Understanding how an individual player contributes to winning could lead to owners signing players to more appropriate contracts. A statistical analysis, including a logistic regression analysis, was performed. The regression attempts to find how individual batting factors influence winning. The resulting model can be used to predict wins.
