How my brain works.....Winter Olympics...Spring....Baseball.... and that got me thinking.....is there anything on developerWorks about baseball?
Sure enough.... check out
- Google code baseball hacks: Create a baseball hack with Google Gadgets, the Google Spreadsheet API, and the Google Chart API
Then I found :
- The Future of Baseball : Sabermetrics, understand what it is, and find out how number crunching can help improve a team’s performance.It's
generally defined as the scientific study of baseball. The word SABR
comes from the Society for American Baseball Research, and those are
the real propeller heads who look at the data and who analyze all the
statistics about baseball. (FYI....this site was slow for me to open and then I had to download the video vs view online...it was still worth it and I did enjoy the quotes from Yogi Berra).
Not a fan of baseball or just need to know more about it: here's a lesson plan on America's Pastime (by IBM...isn't that one a surprise)
