Does Payroll in the MLB Affect Team Performance?

Major

Faculty Mentor

Abstract

Basebal is a multi billion dollar industry with some teams have payrolls over $200 million. Many teams have these large payrolls but are they really paying for wins? In this paper I use team payroll along with other team specific statistics to determine if payroll is really the driving force behind teams winning games.
