The aim of the thesis is to demonstrate the most significant and memorable events throughout the history of Baseball and also display important baseball fields across The United States of America (USA). This thesis is focused on creating a GIS tool showcasing Baseball history, which includes a list of significant events ever since the game was played. This tool is developed using the features of Google Maps that shows the location of the events. Various Baseball fields are also represented on the interactive Google Map whose information is available with a single click. The application also shows the memorable events in chronological order using a timeline feature. This has been implemented using JQuery, JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS. Several movies, books on Baseball are also included in this thesis, which have been embedded with pictures and videos. Advisors/Committee Members: Eckberg, Carl, Liu, Xiaobai, Interlando, Carmelo.
