PITTSBURGH, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Starting today, baseball fans and insiders can find interesting and novel insights about any player in baseball history using OnlyBoth Baseball — a free web & mobile service at OnlyBoth.com. Unlike other baseball references, OnlyBoth discovers new types of insight and delivers them in ready-to-read sentences by fans or media.
Typical users include game viewers who wish to evaluate the player at bat, players themselves who want to highlight to the public their recent or past achievements, and baseball media who are searching for new baseball insights for informing the public. In general, anyone who is interested to know what made a player's season unique or distinctive, whether positive or not.
HOW TO USE IT?
Users can visit OnlyBoth.com, select the baseball option, and enter a player, team, and season, or just enter a player and select from the matches, or a team and year and select from the team's roster. Navigate to find comparable players and contrast them. Move from year to year for a player — even finding his best year with a single click.
You'll find insights such as that Derek Jeter, in arguably his most productive year of 2006, had the most singles (158) of all players who fanned 100 times during a season.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
OnlyBoth technology, based on years of artificial intelligence research first sponsored by the National Science Foundation, mines data in unique ways, and then both discovers and writes up its conclusions. Analyzing nearly 57,000 player seasons, comparing each against the rest, it comes up with over 200,000 insights.
WHERE IS THIS GOING?
Baseball is OnlyBoth's second free launch. In May, the company launched OnlyBoth Colleges, with insights for 3,122 U.S. colleges & universities. Other launches are planned. The company is tweeting All Star Insights at @OnlyBothHitters prior to the 2014 All Star Game.
