The coming of Spring means to me the NCAA tournament and the beginning of Baseball season. Oh sure, there are flowers blooming and other wonderful things, and the religious holidays are sacrosanct, but those two things are the biggest emotional touchpoints for me.

Combine baseballl with a hackathon, and you have a real treat.

Philadelphia's Baseball Hack Day is being held tomorrow, March 19, at Huntsman Hall 370, at the Wharton School, starting at 9:30am. There is no charge for participating. Steve Koller, Director of Software Engineering, MLB Advanced Media, will be one of the judges. Baseball Hack Day is also held in other cities along the east coast.

Baseball Hack Day was orginally born out of a Boston area news & geek meetup group Hacks/Hackers and Society of American Baseball Research Boston Chapter after watching the terrible collapse of 2011 Red Sox season.
