Need Suggestions For Cardinals Probability & Statistics Project

Hi all,

I'm writing a final paper for my Probability and Statistics class at school and wanted to base it off the Cardinals, as I very much love Baseball, and statistics are readily at hand.

 

So the basic instructions of the paper are:

 

*Make a hypothesis comparing two separate population means and gather data to test your hypothesis

  •  
  • *Define a parameter to be tested.  The two samples must be independent.  Some examples:  sales in year 1 vs. year 2, Stadium Attendance in Year 1 vs. Year 2, daily sales in month 1 vs. month 2
  • * Calculate the standard deviations of the sample.
  • *  Conduct a 2-sample z-test of means, at a 95% Confidence level
  •  

    The crux of this project is that my sample size has to be 30 in each population. I had wanted to compare the pitching of the 1982 Cardinals WS Champs to the 2006, but could not because each team didn't have 30 pitchers.

     

     I may have to change the project to something like major league starting pitchers of 1985 compared to 2005, etc.

     

     Knowing that, I would love some insight/suggestions of interesting cardinals/basbeball stats that you guys think I should measure.

    Thanks,

    Nate
