Ferris Bueller Fun at Baseball Prospectus

I have a couple of pieces up over at Baseball Prospectus this weekend. One looks at the baseball histories of both Pittsburgh and Green Bay (in a flagrant use of the Super Bowl as a topic). The second piece is a little more fun, though. It looks at all the evidence shown in the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” to figure out exactly which Cubs game Ferris and pals attend, and to learn who exactly hit that foul ball Ferris caught.

The scene above is all that we need to figure it out (skip to 2m 17 sec if it doesn’t do it for you). But to find out the details, you’ll need to head on over to Baseball Prospectus.

And if you’re worrying about missing any of my BP pieces, I’ve got something for you. I’ll do my best to update this site with links to my BP pieces on a regular basis. But, for a more up-to-date way to follow my BP writing, you can bookmark my author page or subscribe to this RSS feed. Either link will be updated as I post articles.

Thanks again for reading! Now why don’t you follow me on over to Baseball Prospectus for some fun Ferris Bueller trivia…
