Sabermetrics \say-ber-MET-riks\ , noun;
1. The application of statistical analysis to baseball records, especially in order to evaluate and compare the performance of individual players

This word is first attested in 1982 from sabre + -metric. Sabre here is taken from the acronym SABR, or Society for American Baseball Research.

Moneyball, anyone?
