The Center for Study of Sports in Society and Penn State Law will host New York Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson on Monday, November 6 for a two-part conversation about sports and analytics.

Alderson, a Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School graduate, began his law career in San Francisco. Alderson has previously served as the General Manager of the Oakland A’s, the Executive Vice President for Business Operations in the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, and the CEO of the San Diego Padres.

Alderson’s first talk is titled “A Public Sports Lawyer, A Conversation With Sandy Alderson” and will be held at noon in 110 Katz building. According to The Center for the Study of Sports in Society, Alderson will discuss his career as a lawyer and “how lawyers and sports executives communicate their business decisions and policies to the public through the media.”

Alderson’s second lecture, titled “How Sports Executives Who Aren’t Math Majors Can Use Data Effectively,” will be held at 7:30p.m. in Room 110 of the Business Building. Alderson will focus on analytics and effective data use. Alderson’s appearance and talks fit perfectly into the growing trend of data and analytics in sports.
