The general manager of the Cleveland Indians baseball team is in the process of determining which minorleague players to draft. He is aware that his team needs homerun hitters and would like to find a way to predict the number of home runs a player will hit. Being an astute statistician, he gathers a random sample of players and records the number of home runs each player hit in his first two full years as a majorleague player, the number of home runs he hit in his last full year in the minor leagues, his age, and the number of years of professional baseball. Test the model’s validity.

This data is based on factors that (per manager) can affect the number of home runs of players, namely:

Minor league home runs

Age of player

The number of years in professional baseball
