May 24, 2015: National/major
A moderately pointless chart re the names of the main sports leagues in the United States.
May 20, 2015: Ad-free ballpark
I Photoshopped all the advertising out of this photograph of [Beer Brand] Field, Denver, Colorado.
May 17, 2015: Some drawings
Here's a few things from the last couple of months that I forgot to put online:
Yet another drawing of Dodger Stadium
May 17, 2015: Felix on photo day
The last four photo day photos of Felix Hernandez, all GIFed together.
May 17, 2015: Three football stadiums
I really like the Huichol beadwork that one sees a fair bit in Mexico, so I tried to replicate the style with pixels. I drew three football stadiums in this style, stadiums in cities that I have lived in. First, Sincil Bank, the stadium of my hometown team, Lincoln City. The Olympiastadion in Berlin, home of Hertha BSC, and Estadio Azul here in Mexico City.
May 17, 2015: First and Last, Nos.73-80
It's been a while, and, in all honesty, I did these in March of 2012, just forgot to upload them. But, y'know, better late, right? Anyway, the first and last plate appearance by Barry Larkin, Dale Murphy, John Miller, Ken Boyer, Kenny Lofton, Larry Walker, Minnie Miñoso, and Rafael Palmeiro. Clickity click.
March 2, 2015: Fixed links
Quick bit of housekeeping: I recently found out the stuff that I did for TheScore's Getting Blanked blog back in 2012-13 has gone offline, so I put all of those infographics on this site and fixed the links. It was a great time for me. I very much enjoyed being hired to do regular infographics, and it was fun to look back at the stuff I did. That, of course, is of no interest to you, but just in case you have tried to look at some of those recently, they are back online now. Thanks.
September 29, 2014: Mark Teixeira
A chart looking at his value, and the value of other players that have been involved in transactions involving Teixeira.
September 28, 2014: Derek Jeter
It would be very easy to be snarky, as the Internet shows every day, but we would all love a job and career as great as Derek Jeter's.
September 24, 2014: Between the poles
Two drawings of the areas between the foul poles at major league stadiums. I kinda like that this combines the idea of an infographic with "art."
September 24, 2014: Let's make baseball games longer and more boring
It seems like at least once a season, there will be a bevy of tedious articles where people flap their hands and faint like ladies in Victorian novels about the length of baseball games and how that means people will soon stop going to games and watching on the television. Baseball is long and boring, they say, something has to change! I say NO! It's too short and not boring enough MLB is not doing enough to stop people watching! This is my 20-point plan for making baseball better.
September 17, 2014: Adiós, Foro Sol
This week's NotGraphs post is about Foro Sol, the ballpark of my local team, los Diablos Rojos del México.
September 10, 2014: October 27, 2011
This week's NotGraphs post is a short story called October 27, 2011. The day of game six of that season's World Series.
August 6, 2014: Spam baseball cards
For this week's NotGraphs post, I took images from images embedded in spam emails that I received last week and made baseball cards for them.
THE SINISTRAL BASEBALL LEAGUE
An invented league that, sadly, only lasted for part of one season. Here's the promotional poster for that league, where short stops are left-handed.
Eric Nusbaum and I went to Hermosillo to watch the 2013 Caribbean Series. We wrote and drew about it for Sports on Earth. And, in doing so, produced some other content, too, so I've gathered all the links together, in case you wanna see everything that we did.
Exactly what the title sounds like: Lego representations of baseball players. everything that we did.
