I am a part of the Hawaii Pacific University baseball team so I felt it would be a good fit if I incorporated this class and programming with baseball. There are a lot of stats that deal with baseball and organizing them is a hard task to do. The way that we do it is we just write everything down on our pre-made charts. For example, one chart could be for offense that would keep track of total at bats, hits, rbi's, runs, etc. Another could be for pitchers that would keep track of pitches thrown, strikes thrown, balls thrown, etc. After the game is done, a way to organize the stats would be to input them into a computer program so it can be referred back to. Our sports information workers use a program that keeps track of the stats during the game. I thought it would be cool to make a program similar to this that would be a sufficient asset to our team.
