Any Given Sunday: Winning Percentages by Major Sport

Source: Tableau Public
Author: Mike Cisneros

This viz is part of a larger story, which you can find here.


Best Practices:
  • Fantastic layout
  • Great use of jitter plots
  • Highlighting the league that this portion of the story is about
  • Adding the reference lines really helps drive the story home
  • Including the summary caption underneath MLB does a good job of assisting the viewer
  • Nice use of footnotes
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Mike has another view that takes these dots and changes the teams that didn't make the playoffs into circles. Wouldn't been good to include that in this view.
