In this first chapter, you'll get your first look at Lahman's baseball dataset, which you’ll use throughout the course and start working for a baseball historian. You will help the historian look into common opinions regarding baseball batting statistics and even examine a team's performance in one specific season.
In the second chapter, you will start your first tasks for the General Manager of a team, focusing on the performance of Shortstops during the 2019 season. You will also examine batting averages for different teams and players and get introduced to the Mendoza Line!
In this chapter, you will once again team up with a baseball historian to provide information on how offensive productivity has changed over time and hone in on whether batters have emphasized hitting for power as baseball has developed.
The last chapter is all about wrapping up projects for the General Manager. You will look at appearance statistics for players for different positions, and you will also track if a team has met its season targets.
