HPCC is the big data analysis tool from LexisNexis. They have proprietary add-ons as well. They've got a meetup and have spoken at local users' groups. I don't see any upcoming meetups, but keep an eye on them.
This was the note from Trish, their program manager:

Delivering Winning Results with Sports Analytics and HPCC Systems
Big Data Processing & Analytics - HPCC Systems (LexisNexis)
Join us for a meetup at Bleacher Report!
The use of Big Data in the sports industry is increasing rapidly to uncover hidden insights into predicting game models, player data, and other attributes. In addition, sports clubs are collecting and analyzing game data to develop tactics and strategies, teams are tracking athlete data, fans are more interested in analytics in addition to statistics and individuals are tracking their own health via FitBit and similar devices.
In partnership with North Carolina State University, we are holding our next meetup at Bleacher Report - where else for this topic?!
Our speaker will be Associate Professor Vincent Freeh from NCSU who will present various use cases related to sports analytics, discuss leveraging the HPCC Systems open source platform, and the benefits gleaned from the analysis.
Food and beverages provided. Attendees can enter to win raffle prizes!
