Super Baseball Infographics
From the Series Super Sports Infographics
Keeping track of all the fascinating baseball facts and statistics can make your head spin faster than a curveball. You hear about blazing speeds (the average Major League fastball is 92 miles per hour), huge numbers (Barry Bonds hit 762 home runs), and powerful dynasties (the New York Yankees have won the World Series 27 times).
Engaging infographics relate facts and key concepts about baseball, from how pitchers throw a curve ball to the crucial timing of a home run. Detailed “data art” allows readers to visualize important baseball concepts and explore notable aspects of “America’s Favorite Pastime.” The vibrant infographics on each spread appeal to struggling readers and help them analyze and interpret baseball information and statistics.
