Ket to a Winning Streak

The Objective

The object of this project is to identify the most significant baseball statistic associated with winning streaks.

Methods/Materials

Winning streaks were identified in the 2006 and 2007 season .

The four categories Batting Average, Runs Scored, Earned Run Average, and Errors were calculated during the winning streak and the whole season.

The statistics during the winning streak were compared to the season average using the T-test, which required data values such as mean and standard deviation.

Results

The Earned Run Average was most significantly associated with the winning streak in 74% of the winning streaks.

Whereas the other three categories (Batting Average, Runs Scored, and Errors) were less than 44% significantly associated with the winning streaks.

Conclusions/Discussion

The team Earned Run Average is the most significant statistic in relation to a winning streak.

This project examines the statistical significance of baseball parameters during winning streaks.
