#MakeoverMonday: Top 10 Major League Baseball Home Run Hitters

No comments
Earlier today I saw this really cool viz created by Will Sutton that's an animation of the top home run hitters from 1985-2016.

As I posted last week, Sophie Sparkes introduced The Data School and me to Flourish. Flourish makes it super simple to create animated visualizations with tons of customization options. Given that Tableau doesn't support animations in the browser, this is a great alternative. Flourish provides an example, you import your data, do a bit of customization and voila! You have an animated viz.

The data needed to be structured with a column for each season, so I prepped the data in Alteryx and I included all seasons from 1912-2018. I then filtered down to players with 250+ career home runs (to make the list manageable).

And here's my animated viz of the top 10 home run hitters of all-time.
