How to strike it rich in baseball without ever playing | New York Post

You’d better hope your mommy and daddy are loaded because the weight of student loans won’t look so great when you are making minimum wage *if* you ever get a job in baseball. 

Syracuse University has become the first school to award a bachelor’s degree in sports analytics. It will welcome freshmen to the discipline this fall, with the first graduates set to hit the job market in the spring of 2020.

“I think it’s a great idea,” says Billy Beane, the former A’s general manager for whom the term was coined. “I smile to myself, especially thinking about the reactions when the book came out.”
