Everyone likes catching home runs.

What it does

Helps someone figure out where to sit to improve probability of catching home runs.

How we built it

Henry built some gems to scrape home run data from HitTracker and make it easy for the stadium and section models to use. Paul spent a bunch of time on Google Maps to figure out the coordinates of bleacher sections, and then calculating where the taters landed, latitude-and-longitude-wise.

Challenges we ran into

Couldn't find a non-cumbersome way to get section position data. Didn't have/leave enough time to put up a good display for the app.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Life in general.

What's next for tater-grabber

Possible Highcharts integration to make display more awesome. More ballparks than Wrigley Field.
