This fall, NYC Media Lab hosted 3 meetups featuring executives from MLB Advanced Media to highlight recent experiments in player tracking data visualization, fan engagement analytics and virtual reality. The meetups gathered engineers, data scientists and designers.

Now, NYC Media Lab and MLBAM are gearing up for a hackathon. The hackathon will take place during the weekend of February 10-12th 2017 at NYU’s Media + Games Network facility in downtown Brooklyn, and will include challenges in data science, data visualization and VR prototyping.

More announcements will be made in the coming weeks. If you’d like to learn about participation, fill out a quick form here.
