I'm pretty excited for the team and like any good nerd would do, I'm showing my pride by finding a story about the O's I could visualize. Thank you baseballreference.com for the Orioles data set. There was so much data (all the data! as the cool kids would say). My head was spinning with what I could do. I thought a story around stadiums would be cool because the O's have a long history (and have been in three different cities)! But in the end, I thought back to all of the parody accounts on twitter (which are hilarious...my favorites are Seductive Tommy H and Not Buck Showalter) and thought...it's all about the fans. They are awesome, as evidenced by the following clip.
Oh, but before you do, I want to give a shout out to two of my favorite viz folks out there...Andy Kriebel and Matt Francis. They provided a really good review and help where needed.
Okay, now you can go through the turnstyle and see what attendance has been like since Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened. Interested in the data? Click here.
