fly balls and info graphics | mapping baseball

Some of us actually think of information graphics as fun. Truthfully, a few more of us think baseball is fun. But baseball info graphics? That is some serious summertime sports and design two-fer-one fun. Meet Craig Robinson, and his web site flipflopflyball.com. Craig writes, “Essentially, this site is what I’d have been doing when I was 12 years old had the Internet and Photoshop been available to me in the eighties.”  So take a break and visit the site. If you dig deep enough, you’ll find his photo collection of stuck together Tic Tacs (still in their packages). Seriously.

Some of my favorites:
