The third annual Boston Baseball Hack Day on March 2nd, 2014, is a fun, friendly one-day hacking competition for baseball fans. 

Event hashtag: #HackBaseball

The event will be held at the Boston Globe, 135 Morrissey Blvd, Boston, MA, a walking distance from MBTA Red Line "JFK/UMass" stop. 

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.
