I have had a passion and love of history and statistics since childhood and it is a goal of mine to work in a research room. How does one do this? It does not seems as though ESPN and other networks advertise such positions. What should I do or who should I contact to make my goal a reality? I am interested in working in research rooms such as those used during the Olympics, Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and the World Cup.

    I don't think this question is a complete lost-cause. If it was edited to ask about what sort of background sports statisticians have (in terms of education) and how they're recruited, I think it can be on topic. The focus at the moment seems purely vocational, which would make it a much better fit for The Workplace. – Reinstate Monica 2331977 Nov 13 '14 at 3:36
