MEDIA ADVISORY

WHAT:  “The Yankees have a 72.5% chance to beat the Marlins in the World Series, according to Bruce Bukiet. “ It would be fishy if the Marlins were to win,” Bukiet quips, “since the Yankees are overall a better team, with superior hitting and pitching. The Yankees are favored to win all but one game in the series, and even in that game the teams are statistically even.”

WHO:  Bruce Bukiet, Ph.D., an associate professor of mathematical sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has an expertise in numerical methods and mathematical modeling.

WHEN:   Bukiet is available to illustrate his mathematical model or to discuss it over the phone with reporters during weekdays.

WHERE:   He’s available for interview either at his office at 518 Cullimore Hall or by phone: (973) 596-8392. His email address is bukiet@m.njit.edu. His website is m.njit.edu/~bukiet/baseball/playoff03.html.

BACKGROUND:   Bukiet has discussed his baseball model on CNN Headline News. He’s also been interviewed by CBC radio featured in the Jerusalem Post, the National Post (Canada) and other publications.
