Baseball + Numbers = Fun & Games

The book's foreword, by William Keat, PhD, professor at Union College on Carlton Chin: "The predictive power of mathematics ... along with his joy of competition, underpins his unique professional journey from predicting material behavior as an engineering student at MIT, predicting human behavior as ... nationally known financial analyst, to predicting athletic performance as author and contributor to the New York Times."

"... numbers and statistics are Carlton's means to a greater understanding of the sports he loves. In my own experience as a teacher of engineering, I know that the converse is also true, that sports can be used to inspire a greater understanding of science and mathematics."
