Grit. Hustle. Heart. Scrap. These are all words that baseball commentators use to describe certain players and they way they play the game. However, some informal studies so far have shown that these words may in fact be racially coded (see every word written about David Eckstein). In the last couple years, Seth over at Dingersblog.com has done an informal study and recording of the usage of these and other code words (results can be found here, here and here).
However, now they are looking to take it to the next level and make it a little more scientific by hiring 30 people to watch 30 games each and record usages of different code words during broadcasts. Because this is an intense project, they are looking for help with funding. Click here to go to the funding page and a video describing the project in more detail (and probably more clearly) than I have here. Any little bit you can give would be appreciated.
