Gary Sparago is a 50-year-old corporate bond analyst who works for an asset management company in midtown Manhattan. Although never a Yankees fan, he watched a lot of their games last summer and started to suspect that Derek Jeter's overall performance was not as good as the hype would lead you to believe (before the ankle injury, remember how the media kept insisting that Jeter had found the Fountain of Youth?). After doing some research, Gary was startled at what he found and wanted to fully document his results.
So Gary contacted the Statistics department at Columbia and told them about his idea for an independent statistical analysis of Jeter. They put him in touch with an actual Yankee fan, Michael Agne, who is currently working on his PhD in statistics at Columbia. Gary and Michael met at night and on the weekends to conduct their research and thought that their results would be worth sharing with the sabermetric world. We agree.
