Illustrator Craig Robinson married his love of baseball with his artistic talents to put a new spin on baseball numbers. He took hundreds of data points about some of the lesser known baseball facts and created beautiful infographics to depict them in a book.

Another example: If players actually stole the bases they stole it would be 2,757 stolen bases x $89.99 = lost value of $284,102.43. The leading base stealer would have a total value in the range of a Class 4 felony.
Robinson has been able to take data and give it meaning through infographics. If your organization is going to collect data, try to find a way to give others a context of what that data means. Infographics speak much more to people than a page of data. As we become more visual, our numbers need to follow suit.
