Love creating stuff on your computer and LOVE baseball? Come hack with us on March 28 in three cities: Boston, Philadelphia, and Montreal

The fourth annual Baseball Hack Day is a fun, friendly one-day hacking competition (also known as hackathon, hackfest or codefest) for baseball fans.

It is the day where area baseball minds come together and see what cool projects can be created within a limited time. The project could be (but is not limited to) a tool, app, website, or data visualization. Baseball Hack Day is a free event thanks to our generous sponsors. The event is based on the principal of the Hack Day Manifesto.

See what we did in 2014, 2013, and 2012 to get an idea. See our resources in github wiki, check out our inspiraton blog on tumblr, and follow us on Twitter @BaseballHackDay
