Baseball is a game that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Some fans, like season ticket holders, primarily engage by attending live games at the stadium. For others, the game is ubiquitous on their television, smartphone screens, or tablets throughout summer afternoons and evenings. Some people like getting deep into the massive world of advanced statistics, watching analysts on the web and TV, or reading sports reporters’ daily stories. In this episode, Chris Hood is joined by Anil Jain, Managing Director for Media and Entertainment at Google Cloud, and Truman Boyes, Senior Vice President, Technology Infrastructure at Major League Baseball, to take a behind-the-plate look at how data is leveraged to create deeper insights to improve the game and help make baseball consumable by fans in exciting new ways.
