    Analytics and NKU

    https://inside.nku.edu/nkumagazine/2...stianhook.html

    Nice story on the son of Chris Hook, a Cincinnatian and now the pitching coach of the Brewers. The son, Christian Hook, has developed a one-man analytics team at Northern Kentucky U.

    Any relation to Jay Hook? Perhaps, his grandfather?

    Don't think so. Baseball Reference usually notes family members who also played, and I don't see that for Chris Hook. And the SABR bio on Jay mentions his family without referencing Chris. Also, Chris went to Lloyd HS in Erlanger, Ky., when Jay and his family were living in Michigan.

    Upon retirement, Hook immediately started working in product development for Chrysler. “It was fun because I was working on cars that were three or four years out,” he said. Later, a friend was starting a product planning department at Rockwell, and Hook went to work there, getting promoted over the years into management. He later joined auto and plumbing parts manufacturer Masco Corporation, where he went on to be a successful executive managing several companies until his retirement in 1992. He also taught at Northwestern. Hook and his wife raised four children, and at last count they had 13 grandchildren and two step-grandchildren. They live in Maple City, Michigan, and Jay keeps in touch with the game by talking baseball with his grandchildren.
