First woman completing sport analytics degree at Syracuse U

Bailie Brown doesn’t consider herself a trailblazer though in a way she is — and so is her school. Later this month she’ll become the first woman to graduate from Syracuse University’s Falk College with a Bachelor of Science degree in sport analytics. Brown wasn’t an athlete growing up but developed a keen interest in every aspect of her younger brother’s exploits in Little League. Baseball is her game and she’s already been rewarded for her analytical mind, landing a job with the Houston Astros while she completes her final semester of college online.
