Paul Rossman (M.S. Applied Math ’08) had his data set “Drafted Minor League Hitters, 1992–2006” accepted in the Datasets and Stories department of the Journal of Statistics Education.

The Datasets and Stories department of the journal provides a forum for exchanging interesting datasets and discussing ways they can be used effectively in teaching statistics. Rossman compiled his dataset as part of his master's thesis under the direction of Dr. Christoph Maier. His thesis concerned players in baseball's minor league system, and he explored factors that best predict their making it to the major leagues.
