This viz was created to celebrate the Giants winning the 2010 World Series. It shows key stats for the players by pre and post season so the user can compare stats easily across players and the two teams and how the players performed as the season progressed. Obviously the post season games are not enough of a sample size for a true comparison.
This was a very early attempt to design a viz for mobile devices using 2009 baseball data. Based on the design of an antique pinball game the user could quickly get stats on the current pitcher and batter at a game. The stats were color coded (red to blue) to provide a quick visual cue as to if the player was performing above or below average compared to other players. In addition the field below showed the number of hits for the season that had been single, doubles, homeruns,etc, plotted out on the vintage diamond. This was my first use of a custom background image and mapping the data based on coordinates.
