April 26-28, 2009   Sheraton Phoenix Downtown   Phoenix, Arizona

Off to the Baseball Game, with an Operations Research Connection

by Michael Trick on April 25th, 2009

I just arrived in Phoenix, and I’m off to this evening’s game between the Giants and the Diamondbacks.  There is an operations research connection, of course:  both the teams and the umpires are scheduled with operations research.  So this is kinda like a site visit:  I’m there to be sure exactly two teams show up, along with four umpires!

More serious posts tomorrow when I attend some of the Technology Workshops.

  1. Phoenix is a great place. I believe you will enjoy checking out Giants and the Diamondbacks teams. I honestly believe that attending technology workshop is a big chance to learn new things. I am hoping that you will provide information about the things you have learned. I will also appreciate it, if you will post important points tackled on the technology workshop. Thanks!

    The link from Microsoft Solver Foundation Technical Workshop ends up here. Somehow the link was “mis-linked”.

    Please provide the correct link.
