I’m compiling a list of interesting baseball projects. They can be cool baseball posters. Baseball data analysis. Baseball art. As I come across any projects related to baseball, I’ll add them to this list. I feel like this list could be in the hundreds. For now it’ll be small, but it will grow.
I should also add an image for each. Someday I will.
