Data Viz Done Right

HR output – 1920-2008: Which teams should be feared?

No comments

As a follow up to the comments from my recent blog post on ranking a team’s total HR output, I have put together this simple interactive viz using Tableau Public.

The data covers 1920 through 2008 (1920 was the start of the live ball era) and measures three stats:

  1. Total home runs over the history of each franchise (the oldest teams will nearly always be ranked at the top)
  2. Total home runs per year for each franchise
  3. Total home runs per game for each franchise

Click on a team name and the viz will:

  • Highlight the bar charts to allow for comparison within the three categories
  • Update trend charts to reflect only the team selected

What do you see?
