Over the past few weeks Beyond the Box Score has been conducting their first annual Sabermetric Writing Awards and here at FanGraphs, we’re honored that our work was so well received considering all the other great baseball research and writing this year.
Dave Allen won the award Best Applied Research Article/Project for his multiple articles on Run Value by Pitch Type and Location, which can all be found at Baseball Analysts. And in the same category Matt Klaassen finished fourth with his article on the “little things” for 2008. The 2009 version of the article can be found here on FanGraphs.
Award winning aside, the whole nomination process definitely brought a lot of the year’s best baseball research and writing to the forefront and it’s worth checking out all the nominations in each category if you haven’t already.
