Return to BTF Research Center

Welcome to the
BasebaLL Think Factory!

As founder and webmaster of the BasebaLL Think Factory (BTF), I would like to welcome you to my little corner of the baseball world. BTF was created to assist baseball fans, sabermetricians, and game players in the following ways:

  • establish a central location to find pertinent information already available on the net,
  • publish BTF's original baseball analysis,
  • facilitate the presentation of others' research to the baseball world,
  • educate those beginning the journey to baseball enlightenment.

BTF hopes to compliment the baseball research already completed by organizations, companies, and individuals. As baseball fans, we owe a debt of gratitude to those who have devoted a great deal of time and money studying baseball. I wish to show gratitude by doing my part to expand the knowledge of baseball.

How can you help?

Because I do not know everything there is to know about baseball, I am constantly searching for new baseball information. If you happen upon an interesting tidbit or publish a statistical study, tell me about it. If the information is already available on the net, I will place a link on an appropriate page. If the information is not available, I will add it to the BTF web site -- giving you full credit, of course.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Jim Furtado
