T-Test Gadget - The ultimate argument settler! Compare
a player's stats to another player or to his team or to
his league to find out if the amount that he is better (or worse)
is statistically significant.
How it works: Enter the "Base" (such as AB

will instantly tell you if the difference is statistically significant.
