Sports Economics Continued

My old Economics professor has a post on when baseball players "peak."

Let’s start with a pop quiz: At what age does the average big-league ballplayer reach his peak?
If you said 27, you are an unusually conscientious student of sports and, quite likely, a devotee of the great Bill James, one of the founding fathers of sabermetrics and a consultant to the Red Sox.
You’re also wrong.
