The idea for Market Data Softball was conceived in 2011 when I was starting a team for FactSet’s New York office, where I work as a research analyst. The “corporate” league we joined had a random assortment of companies and even some teams made up of a collection of friends. But who my team really wanted to play was our competitors, other financial information providers. We played in faraway corners of Manhattan, while we wanted to play in Central Park. The games took place after dark, and we had to lug around our own bases and balls. I knew I could provide a better experience, and so Market Data Softball was born.
