In this day and age, the world of sports has become ever more reliant on statistics.  When done correctly, the analysis of a team's statistics can help to show the strengths and weaknesses of players.  For our project, we analyzed game data from the university's baseball team from games played last season, collected by the team's FlightScope tracker.  This presentation will discuss what we discovered about which players had the best overall performance in a number of categories, such as launch angles and exit velocities of hit balls, and whether certain variables explain the on-field performance of the players.
