Andrew Odewahn, editor of Baseball Hacks, sent in a link to this great article about how to display batting statistics in a Google Gadget:

You will learn about Google Gadgets, the Google Spreadsheet API, and the Google Chart API. After reading this article, you’ll have a good idea of the sorts of applications you can build using these APIs, know enough to get started writing your own applications, and know where to get more detailed information.
