GAs, baseball & the Hall of Fame

AndrewKoch.com has a terrific post about a paper by one David Cohen (I have a cousin named David Cohen, but he doesn't do GAs) that uses genetic algorithms to induce a rule that helps determine whether or not a player is elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Apparently the rule is as follows:

if
Games >2794 and AB >3967 and Runs >1145 and Hits >1297 and TotalBases >4432 and Doubles >252 and Triples >14 and HR >355 and RBI >325 and StolenBases >341 and BB >658 and HBP >9 and Strikeouts <2087>9 and Psbb >1 and Psstrikeouts <42>0.269 and PSOBP >0.010
then
its Cooperstown Time

Read the whole paper here. Now, if only someone would use a GA to determine what it takes to get tenure at a major research university.

How would you like to know about a Fitness Babes resource, that displays all the Fitness Babes information on one website? Check out
Fitness Babes today. Not only do they have a good fitness book section, but they also have great articles on fitness. I was really impressed with the resources their webmster put together.
