Slides from Rocky Mtn SABR Meeting

Last Saturday I had the good fortune to present a talk on finding, gathering, and analyzing some sports-related data on the web at the local SABR group meeting.  In case you’re not familiar with the “SABR” acronym, it stands for “Society for American Baseball Research”; here’s a link to the national organization.  The talk was light on tech and heavy on graphs (predominately made in R and in particular ggplot2).  Good times were had by all.  The slides from the talk are given below.  Most of the slides and code are recycled from previous talks, so I apologize in advance if you’re already familiar with the content.  It was, however, new to the SABR people.
