TidyX 53: MLB Pitch Classification Series — EDA & Hierarchical Clustering

This week, Ellis Hughes and I begin a several week series on MLB Pitch Classification. Each week we will go over a different classification model using pitchf/x data, which we accessed via the {mlbgameday} R package.

In this first video of the series, we cover the following steps:

  • Loading the data
  • Data cleaning
  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Hierarchical cluster analysis
  • Interactive plotting of the dendrogram in {plotly}
