High school coaches are turning to analytics to gain an edge
Yahoo Sports
Ted Sullivan was coaching a youth baseball team in New York when he noticed something odd: At least a few people in the stands were looking down, distracted, after every play. Some were texting about the play, others were tracking the game in an old-school scorebook. Regardless, no one was actually watching the entire game. Coaches also had their eyes on the book, monitoring pitch counts and trying to anticipate where each batter would hit.

USA Today
In less than a month, most minor league baseball players will disperse to farm teams around the country, working toward their big-league goals while they earn a salary that amounts to less than the hourly minimum wage.

National Center for Business Journalism
The science is becoming pretty clear: specialization for young athletes is causing overuse injuries that cost them playing time. And, it's also becoming clear that many of these injuries are happening to athletes whose parents put money towards year-round travel leagues for single sports.

Should athletes get a piece of the NCAA Tournament revenue?
The Wall Street Journal
Whether to pay college athletes remains one of the most explosive issues in sports, as media rights fees and coaching salaries have exploded. Athletic departments have morphed into mini-corporations.
