Computer Assisted Writing
For the story about the history of Cycles in major league baseball the writer needed to use computer assistance. They used the computer to look up information on large number and statistical databases that hold millions of dates and scores from over a hundred years. It would takes years to sort through these files if they were filed in paper form. Instead they are stored on computers and the writers can assist their articles by going through them. The writer just needed to know how to correctly search the information. They also need to know what sites to use and which ones are trustworthy. It would not be good to use a site that stores the information randomly and also that stores information that might not be correct.
