Our friends at Draught Associates have expanded their offerings by creating the Visual Aid Shop. An extension of their hit books the Visual Aid Shop hosts an astounding inventory of richly designed information graphics. Finally, all those strange and chintzy posters you can find at Newberry comics in well designed form! Own a Flags of the World poster that isn’t filled with beer or strains of marijuana. Stock on Holiday gifts, but don’t spend all your hard-earned pennies in one spot because there may be another store right around the corner. More on this soon…

Flip Flop Fly Ball

There are three things that I think go hand in hand with baseball: beer, sunshine, and statistics. Baseball’s lengthy 162 game regular season makes the use of statistics all the more relevant within the strategies of the game. Players and plays become more easily predictable due to the huge amount of sampling data. This is why I love baseball. The numbers mean something to the way the game is played. Craig Robinson, the creator of Flip Flop Flyin’, has taken his love of baseball and stats and transformed them in to a series of infographics about the game. You may not see Lou Pinella or Joe Torre using these graphics in the dugout, but successfully inform the curious observer such as myself. The infographics vary from how many baseball movies Kevin Costner has starred in, to how much it would much it would cost the MBL if players actually stole the bases when they “stole” a base. Robinson has compiled all this baseball related infographics, photos, and drawings for your viewing pleasure. I smell a book deal or flashcards in the works! Hug Press anyone?
