Jenny Faig, sophomore Statistics major, investigated the variables that impact the number of home runs a batter hits in baseball in a poster she prestented titled “Batter Up.”  She presented her work at StatFest, which was held at NC State in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 27, 2014.  Jenny concludes that a player’s weight, number of games played, and whether they are a right or left-handed batter were significant factors in the number of home runs hit.
