"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." ~ Albert Einstein
What does this application do?
This app makes simple sense out of complex baseball data by translating data analysis into interactive "infographics" that communicate information in unique ways that are visually compelling, easy to understand and intuitive to use.
Why is this application interesting?
Even though many baseball statistics apps are available for the iphone, most do not present information in a way that's intuitive to people who did not major in mathematics. Parsing through table after table of raw data or studying typical line graphs and bar charts to extract meaningful information feels more like work than an enjoyable diversion from work. This app translates information into infographics that are visually compelling to look at and fun to play with.
Baseball Apps on iTunes: Too many numbers! Too many features! These people are doing it all wrong!

Data Visualization, Human-Computer Interaction and Baseball Statistics
After taking "Data Visualization" with Dr. Grinstein last semester, I have become deeply interested in the fields of interactive visualization and human-computer interaction. The concepts covered in that class planted the seeds for the idea of using this project to further explore the design of interactive visualization.
