Batting Explorer 2018 Data Updated

I’m happy to announce that the 2010-2019 version of the Batting Explorer has been updated with 2018 stats, courtesy of the kind folks at seanlahman.com and baseball-databank.

The Batting Explorers were built using the Exhibit software from the MIT Simile project. A wide array of facets (filters) enable searching, sorting, and data discovery in a fun manner, with every batter having his basic stats packaged in a representation of a baseball card. Here’s a screenshot of some 2018 cards:

Batting Explorers Updated Through 2017 Season

I’m pleased to share that the Batting Explorer visualization for the 2010s decade has now been updated with 2016 & 2017 statistics. This ongoing project captures batting statistics at the season level for every major league batter, and visualizes them in a baseball card type of format, as seen below:

A number of filters are provided to make it easy to browse across a wide range of attributes, including all of the major batting categories:

One of my favorite aspects of the Batting Explorer is the ability to link to greater detail by clicking on a specific player card, which will transport you to the Baseball-Reference page for that player:

This project uses the Exhibit project software originally developed years ago as part of the MIT Simile project, as well as a lot of HTML & CSS for styling purposes. Give it a try, and thanks for reading.
