Joe was a co-winner of the 2015 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference research competition for his paper and presentation entitled Who Is Responsible For A Called Strike?, a detailed overview of the innovative new methodology that he helped develop for quantifying “pitch framing” and the impact that the catcher, pitcher, batter, and umpire all have on whether a pitch is called a ball or a strike.
Joe has degrees in Civil Engineering from Columbia University (B.S.) and California Institute of Technology (M.S.) as well as a dual-degree MBA/M.S. in Sports Management from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
