Benjamin Burroughs (Journalism and Media Studies) published an article on baseball, sabermetrics, and infrastructures of expertise in the journal Games and Culture. Statistical fandom is presented as a cultural infrastructure, which influences how all fans perceive the game of baseball, including what is valued in the game, how the game itself is played, and Major League Baseball as an industry. In building off of Erica Halverson and Richard Halverson's (both academics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison) conception of a fantasy plane of baseball fandom, this research theorizes an additional statistical plane. Sabermetrics serve as a microcosm for understanding a larger statistical turn in sports and reporting.
