From my latest post on Russ Springer. Here's how I made that awesome picture: 1. First I grabbed all of Springer's Flyballs from last year from my pitchfx database. 2. Then I found the x and y hit coordinates for each and threw them into a scatter plot. Like all gameday data I don't imagine this is perfect, but I think it's pretty accurate and it's what we've got to work with. 3. Then using the example from the Joseph Adler's Baseball Hacks book I inverted the y axis and plotted the baseball diamond black box in the picture. 4. I then went into Google Earth and found Oakland Coliseum, overlaid my chart on the stadium, and rotated/stretched the chart until the black box "diamond" matched up with the Coliseum's. 5. Voila, and you now have Russ Springer's 2008 Flyball Chart mapped onto Oakland Coliseum.
