Home run tracker app updated

by on Jul.13, 2010 @ 9:44 am, under NPB

I've implemented a number of changes to the Home Run Tracker in the hopes to make it a little more useful.

Here are the changes:

  • For now, you can no longer see a full view of the home runs -- there were a large number of pages and I doubt that most people actually looked past the first few pages anyway.
  • The tracker is now broken down into team sections with a break down on batters that have hit homers, stadiums where batters have hit homers, pitcher that have allowed homers, and stadiums where pitchers have allowed homers.  For example, you can now click into Rakuten Eagles and see that the hitter have hit 53 homers and that 20 of them came at Kleenex Stadium.  You can also see that Satoshi Nagai has given up the most homers on the staff with 11 and that the staff as a whole has allowed 13 homers at Seibu Dome.
  • You can still view homers by date by clicking on the dates once you drill down into the individual homer pages.
  • You can also view homers by stadium (in general).

There are still plenty of changes I'd like to make, but for this is what I have for the time being.  And if anyone happens to have any ideas for what they'd like to see in the tracker, feel free to let me know by leaving a note in the comments.
