Predicting Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Probability
Hall of Fame voting for Major League Baseball is a subjective process with a lot of room for bias and inconsistency. I used multiple linear regression to predict the probability of a player being inducted into the Hall of Fame based on a set of career statistics that I decided to control for in the model. I compared the predictions to actual voting results and my model correctly predicted one hundred percent of the time.
