Implementing a Database Information System for an Electronic Baseball Scorecard
Tiffany M. Wong
Dartmouth TR2001-396

Abstract: We present our design and implementation of a database system of information storage and retrieval for an electronic baseball scorecard. The program uses the relational MySQL database to hold information and a Tcl API to handle interactions between the database and the user interface code. This paper discusses the inner workings of how information storage was broken down inside the database, how queries were internally constructed in accordance with the user's input, and how statistics for players and teams were calculated and returned to the user. Finally, we discuss some limitations attached to our current implementation of the program and propose improvements that can be made in future versions.
