In his book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell argues that more American-born baseba]] players have birth dates in the months immediately following July 31 because that was the age cutoff date for nonschool baseball leagues. The table below lists month of births for a sample of American-born basebal l players and foreign-born baseball players. Using a 0.05 significance level, is there sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that months of births of baseball players are independent of whether they are born in America? Do the data appear to support Gladwell 's claim?
