« Return of the barrel | Main | Revisiting the home run data »



Adding interactivity to suffice insufficient display of information has never been a good practice. This indeed is a classic example. This is exactly where a visualization expert should pitch in and an interaction designer should stay out.

Different patterns/symbols could be designated to left-handed/right-handed/switch hitters. Also home and home-away runs could be shown by different colors simultaneously representing the ground sizes. On selecting a player for comparison, a small outline or highlight could indicate which players are selected.

They just need a good visualization designer instead of getting over this post.
