Sig Mejdal has been named Orioles Assistant General Manager, Analytics. Mejdal will oversee all aspects of the club’s growing analytics efforts while assisting and advising EVP & General Manager Mike Elias in all manner of Baseball Operations decisions.

Sig Mejdal is a former NASA scientist who has been a leader in the baseball analytic revolution. As a St. Louis Cardinal he championed sabermetrics and “took 22 months of data from college baseball games and ran it through an algorithm to determine the likely performance and stats baseball players would achieve.” Leaving with Jeff Ludnow Mejdal designed and implemented the rebuild of the Houston Astros  (as well as others) with data science.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
