is an ontology for describing
baseball teams, players, games, and plays.
It was developed as demonstration and training material
in an application domain generally understood by U.S. audiences.
for an example.
The basic approach is to have an ordered sequence of
events extending from the team, to the game, to innings,
to individual pitches, swings, and plays.
No aggregation (league standings, box scores, statistics, etc.)
is done in this ontology;
it's expected that properties from a baseball aggregation ontology
could be added to the
classes defined in this ontology.
This ontology was developed using
is the actual OIL-in-RDFS source;
was exported from OilEd.
Some instances have been created using
A UML representation of this ontology,
After developing this ontology,
we became aware of existing tools such as
(which fans can
