### Modeling Baseball At Bats

This semester in my mathematics capstone course, students had the chance to develop mathematical models to describe real world research problems. I took this as an opportunity to research and develop probabilistic models that can be used to predict the outcome distribution of a baseball at bat. My hope was that I could apply my findings from this research project to my side project of Beat the Streak. I learned a lot about mathematical modeling in this class, and explored a variety of techniques for making predictions about baseball at bats. At the end of the class, we wrote a report that introduces the models we came up with, and compares the quality of the predictions they produce. I have made this report available here.
