Information Systems/Technical Services: IT Database Management/Services
Information Technology Intern - Baseball Info Solutions (Coplay, PA)

Company Overview

Baseball Info Solutions (BIS) opened its doors back in 2002 and has been on the leading edge of the advanced statistical study of baseball ever since. The company’s mission is to provide the most accurate, in-depth, timely professional baseball data, including cutting-edge research and analysis, striving to educate major league teams and the public about baseball analytics

BIS employs a staff of expert baseball scouts and an army of highly trained video scouts who conduct several passes of each game, recording everything from basic box score data to times and locations of balls in play, pitch types and locations, defensive shifts, and much more.

The company’s analysts and programmers dissect data, producing a variety of predictive studies and analytics, including, for example, Defensive Runs Saved. Defensive Runs Saved estimates the number of runs a defender saves or costs his teams because of his ability to convert balls in play into outs, defend bunts, turn double plays, prevent baserunner advancements, and several other factors. A couple of the more recent advancements are Strike Zone Plus/Minus—which measures the number of extra strikes drawn because of the framing tendencies of catchers, pitchers, batters, and umpires—and Stolen Base Red Light/Green Light—which predicts baserunner success rates on stolen bases against various pitcher-catcher combinations, even if they have never faced each other.

Baseball Info Solutions was co-founded by John Dewan, who has been a leader in baseball analytics for more than 25 years. From his first partnership with Bill James as the Executive Director of Project Scoresheet to co-founding STATS, Inc. and his 15-year tenure as CEO, John has continually broken new ground in sports data and analytics. Through products and publications such as The Bill James Handbook and The Fielding Bible, John, Bill, and BIS have continued that tradition to this day.

Position Overview

The candidate will support the IT Department as we develop new features and products as well as help maintain existing products. Strong candidates will possess a self-motivated attitude, great communication skills, and be able to work in a collaborative, team environment or independently as needed.

Responsibilities:

  • Hardware and Software support

  • Assist with Windows application development in VB and C#
