Most documents on the web today contain image as well as text data. So far, classification of images has been dependent on the annotation. For the more efficient and accurate classification, not only textual data but also image contents should be considered. In this paper, we propose a novel method for classifying specific image data; sports images. The proposed method is based on the Bayesian framework and employs four important color features to exploit the properties of sports images.
