Flip Flop Fly Ball Is Flippin' Fantastic

I've been meaning to get to this for a while now (I know, Deadspin covered it already a few weeks ago), but other work just kept getting in the way. Anyways, here it is: Flip Flop Fly Ball.

If you haven't seen it before, it's a site that takes baseball (awesome), some of its odd facts, figures, stats and numbers (awesomer), and then its creator, Craig Robinson, turns it all into pretty amazing (and fun) visual representations of it all (head asplode). I'll let Craig explain:

A love of baseball plus a love of infographics equals Flip Flop Fly Ball.

Essentially, this site is what I'd have been doing when I was 12 years old had the Internet and Photoshop been available to me in the eighties. As well as the infographics there are a few other bits and bobs; like small pixiliated portraits of some baseball players. They are filleted from a bigger collection of Minipops (that's what I call them) which is one of the biggest parts of my main web site, Flip Flop Flyin' (thus the name of this site). There's also some photos from some of the stadiums I've visited, and a few drawings.

Some of my favorites after the jump.
