### Sports Statistics

You probably have heard about “sports stats” when people begin to compare famous athletes. These numbers measure different things from how fast an athlete completes a swimming lap to the number of home runs hit in a game to the number of assists to make a basket. Statistics are used to calculate these numbers so that people can make predictions about who the best athlete is, which team will win a game, and who to pick when creating your own team.
