Sport Management Research Meeting: Student Baseball Analytics

Four undergraduate students at Washington State University, Dante Ludlow, Matthew Cho, Alex Yano and Reagan Stubb, will speak in the first Sport Management research meeting of the Fall 2019 semester. Their presentation entitled, “MLB Pitching Strategies: 2019 SABR Diamond Dollars Case Competition,” happens 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, September 18, in Cleveland Hall 255 in Pullman.

This spring, Washington State University had its first-ever team of students compete in the Diamond Dollars Case Competition at the Society for American Baseball Research Analytics Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. Undergraduate students Dante Ludlow, Matthew Cho, Alex Yano, and Reagan Stubb were tasked with developing a strategy for MLB teams to most effectively distribute innings within a pitching staff. The team will be presenting their findings and projected results for every MLB team, as well as discussing the experience of traveling to the conference, a trip that was partially funded by the Sport Management program.

Sport Management research meetings are organized by the Sport Management program at Washington State University. They occur monthly and feature faculty and student presentations of ongoing and completed research projects. Students and faculty from all programs are welcome to attend.

Ledger Art Workshops. Art as Therapy

Dear friends,
The Mestizo Center is pleased to announce the last “Under the Skin” workshop Fall 2017. With the support of the Plateau Center for Research and Collaboration and Native American Programs and Native American Student Center we are honored to announce the visit of Black Feet Artist John Pepion  this Thursday November 30. Students, faculty, staff, and community members will have two spaces to listen to John’s story and co-create ledger art. People are invited to attend either or both 😃10-12 we will be in Cleveland 21A and 2-5pm Mestizo Center Cleveland Hall 121 (Beside the Math Lab). A couple of  links on John’s artistic are provided below. We hope you can join us in this semester’s last space of listening, dialogue, and creation. Our gratitude in advance for the support expressed to the Mestizo Center and “Under the Skin” series.

About John

John Isaiah Pepion is an artist who hails from the Blackfeet Nation in northern Montana. The art journey has been ceremonial for John as his understanding of his past, family, and culture grows with his work. He descends from Mountain Chief, a Blackfeet leader who preserved history through numerous winter counts. Through art, John finds personal healing and cultural preservation. He speaks with troubled youth in public schools to promote the benefits of art as therapy. John holds formal degrees in Art Marketing and Museum Studies from United Tribes Technical College and the Institute of American Indian Arts, respectively. However, his education continues with every piece he creates and with every story he shares. John incorporates traditional design elements into colorful contemporary illustrations, leaving his work highly recognizable. Most importantly, John’s art deepens his connections to self and place, providing him with a sense of strength.

 

About the Workshop

I start the workshop with an introduction of who I am and start talking about ledger art plus I show examples of my art. I explain the history of ledger art and where it’s at now. Then I share my work and tell my story. After that I hand out a few books on ledger art for youth and adults to view. Then I give the youth and adults actual antique ledger paper. I share how to draw my style of ledger horses or buffalo step by step

Workshop: Mistaken Identity: A reflection of the Mixed-Race Experience 

#UnderTheSkin

About the Workshop

Dear followers of the Mestizo Center, we continue with our series of workshops this Fall 2017, exploring the complexities of identity formation. This Thursday, Faith Price, Assistant Director of the WSU’s Native American Programs, will share her experience as a mixed-race human being. In Faith’s words, in this workshop “we will explore the parts that make us whole, and the complexities of phenotype and racial identity”. This will also be a unique opportunity to learn from Faith’s skills to design and we will be co-creating with her a collective art piece. As usual, we will have wonderful food, conversations, and a great time.

Thank you for supporting #UnderTheSkin by spreading the word among your networks. Everybody is welcome. See you on Thursday, 2:00pm Cleveland Hall 121
