This data set is deduced from the
Baseball fielding data
set: fielding performance basically includes the numbers of Errors,
Putouts and Assists made by each player. In order to reduce the
number of observations, the was compressed by calculating the mean
number of errors, putouts and assists for each team and for only 6
positions (1B, 2B, 3B, C, OF, SS and UT). In addition, each of these
three variables was scaled to a common range by dividing each variable
by the maximum of the variable.
A data frame with 154 observations and 4 variables.

baseman, 2B=second baseman, 3B=third baseman, C=catcher,
