Don't want to watch a baseball game and eat unlimited amounts of food, but still want to hang out with the FanGraphs crowd? We can do that too. On Saturday, March 12th, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, we will be hosting panel discussions with members of the FanGraphs and RotoGraphs staff, as well as several notable executives from various Major League front offices. They'll talk about how statistical analysis plays a role in their decision making with their respective clubs, we'll talk about how awesome heat maps are, and the RotoGraphs guys will talk ADP and other fantasy related topics.
The room we've rented for the event is slightly larger than a starter home, so space is somewhat limited. This will likely be a more intimate affair, as much as a collection of baseball statgeeks getting together on a Saturday evening can be considered intimate. Admission to this event will include:
* A chair
* A chance to ask questions of some pretty interesting people
* The right to awkwardly hang around after the event ends and see if the group ends up going to any drinking establishments nearby.
