A collection of a wide range of research papers on applications of statistics to various sports from journals published by the American Statistical Association and the Royal Statistical Society from 2000 through 2004. The anthology is divided into eight sections (Baseball, Cricket, Football, Golf, Olympics/Track & Field, Soccer, Other Sports, and Miscellaneous), each comprising several research articles on applications of statistics to the corresponding sport written by leading researchers, and each featuring an original introduction written by a leading researcher on the application of statistics to the corresponding sport. The anthology includes research papers at all levels of statistical sophistication that utilize a wide variety of statistical methods, and should therefore be of great interest to the statistically inclined sports fan as well as instructors and students of statistics who are looking for examples of interesting applications of statistics to problems in sports.
