World Series, Yankee Stadium, 011031

The 2001 baseball world series' fourth game was played in Yankee Stadium on Oct 31, amid continuing concerns that this gathering of so many people might be a new target for terrorist attack. Of course it was also an exciting sports event because the Arizona Diamondbacks were a new team, only four years old, and had won the first three games from the Yankees, putting them in a good position for an upset. Arnold Lettieri and I thought it would be a reasonable event for a prediction, though it was not likely to capture global interest. Our prediction was for an increase in the Chisquare (standard analysis) from 7:00 to midnight EST, thus including some time prior to and following the actual game.
