If you are a baseball fan like me you may like to keep up with your team’s minor league system. Or, maybe you have some summer travel plans and would like to take in a minor league game along the way. I created a visualization in Tableau that maps every minor league team and all the information you need for any team. You are also able to filter by MLB team affiliation, level (i.e., A, AA, AAA, etc.), state and league.
In creating this visualization, I had the opportunity to try out some new things. First, I utilized TIGERweb WMS for the background map so that only the U.S. appears. Second, I used the mobile version of Wikipedia which works really well with a limited amount of dashboard real estate.
In creating this visualization, another fun part for me was to see all of the creative team names out there. My favorite is the Hartford Yard Goats, the Rockies’ AA affiliate.
Hopefully you will enjoy interacting with this visualization and learn something new.
