Description

Whether you're a sports fan or a data fan (or both!), you don't want to miss this event!

Level is excited to host this event about the data behind the baseball. What can you learn when you compare batting averages to the game locations? Does it matter who's first at bat? Do player salaries have any affect on the team's record?

Level instructor Phillip Pollard will teach you how you can use tools and concepts in data analytics to find insights you'll never hear from your favorite sports analyst! This virtual event is open to the public.
