Week 19 of #MakeoverMonday looked at the most efficient batters in Major League Baseball (MLB).

Here’s the original viz:

What works well:
  • Simple title that says what it is about
  • Nice colour choices
  • There’s a lot of detail included, but without cluttering the viz
What could be improved:
  • I don’t follow baseball, I was a bit lost when trying to understand this
  • I was confused by the highlighted stats. What do they mean?
  • Similarly, why are certain players highlighted by diamonds in the charts?
What I focused on:
  • I went with a simple top ten bar chart showing the best home-run hitters. This can be filtered by year. Nice and simple!
