Baseball and Operations Research

Blogged at the INFORMS Practice site on how to make a trip to a baseball game a legitimate business expense.

I just arrived in Phoenix, and I’m off to this evening’s game between the Giants and the Diamondbacks.  There is an operations research connection, of course:  both the teams and the umpires are scheduled with operations research.  So this is kinda like a site visit:  I’m there to be sure exactly two teams show up, along with four umpires!

More serious posts tomorrow when I attend some of the Technology Workshops.
