I've been a baseball fan for a long time. Growing up in Alabama during the time of Hank Aaron's amazing career meant that I was an Atlanta Braves fan. Now that I live near San Diego, I find it difficult to follow the Braves. Of course, I've also adopted the San Diego Padres, too. The best way to follow the teams is now mlb.com. I've been visiting mlb.com for a long time and can say that without doubt they get much better every year. This year they've significantly improved the site, especially the gameday information. The new gameday is very, very cool. It shows the pitches in 3-D including the strike zone and break. You can pick different angles to view the pitches. It is very, very cool. Since such things cannot be completely automated, there must be someone in the back room putting together the play-by-play commentary. Well, CNET just wrote a photo gallery showing the fine folks who run the site and put all of the information out there in near real time. It is also cool because you can see some of the Sun gear in the background. I'm happy to be a long time baseball fan (love ya Hank), and even happier to know that Sun has helped make mlb.com such a cool site.
