The dataset contains variables for K/BB, ERA, Hits + BB per Inning, Home Team Winning Percentage and more. The last four columns of the 2011 Worksheet are “RANK” variables– as in performance ranking. The last column assigns each umpire an overall score based on their observed performance. Umpire’s with scores closer to 1 are better while those closer to 0 are worse.
