RED (RogersEckersley Design) recently came up with a new way of exploring information graphics at the intersection of sports and design. Their “stat bat” idea displays the top 10 all-time hits leaders engraved directly onto the surface of a baseball bat. Once they had explored some initial sketches the studio partnered with a shop in Minnesota to help craft their vision. The results are pretty eye-catching and present a great way of getting fans of America’s greatest game interested in history and stats. Nike even took notice and asked the firm to make a series of aluminum ones for the College World Series in Omaha. More pics over here.
