Updates to NBL, D-League, and WNBA Sections

Posted by Justin Kubatko on May 3, 2013

I've made some updates to the NBL, D-League, and WNBA sections of Basketball-Reference.com:

  • Each section now has a navigation bar near the top of every page, making it much easier to jump from one subsection to another.
  • A subsection has been added to the WNBA section for WNBA coaches.
  • Basic biographical information has been added for some WNBA players.
  • Footnotes have been added to the NBL standings to note cases where franchises moved or folded, teams had forfeit wins or losses, etc.

Please let us know if you have any question or comments about these changes.

Building on the 2013 splits and gamelogs that went out today we've added gamelogs and splits for 2008 to 2012. Row Summing still works for these gamelogs. Let us know what you think as we work to add more and more minor league data to the site.

Add Your Blog Posts to PFR Player Pages

Posted by Neil on May 2, 2013

PFR Player Name Linker / Add your Site to our Player Newsfeeds

It's the offseason, which means lots of news on the player-movement front. That's why we have newsfeeds on the PFR player pages, showing the latest player news from KFFL, injury reports and links to relevant PFR blog posts. If you have a blog or website with an RSS feed you can add your site to relevant player pages as well. Our Player Linker Tool will take your blog posts as you've written them and run them through a program and add links to PFR player pages where appropriate. So while you don't have the resource to create your own player pages for your site, you can treat us as your site's statistics partner, linking Eli Manning's name to our stats or any player all the way back to Y.A. Tittle and Otto Graham.

If the links then appear in your rss feed and you let us know to look for them, we'll pull them out of your feed and then link back to you from Eli's page, or Otto Graham's or whomever you link to.

If you help your users find our great content, we'll help our users find yours. And best of all it is all automated except for one click of an easy-to-install bookmarklet. Check the Player Newsfeeds page for details. This link share will also work for tables you share using the SHARE tooltip found above every stats table on the site.

2013 Splits Added to Minor-League Player Pages

Posted by Neil on April 30, 2013

In addition to the Gamelogs Sean mentioned adding the other day, we've also added splits tables to the 2013 gamelog pages for minor-league batters and pitchers.

They aren't quite as detailed as the splits you'll find on our major-leaguers' pages, but they do tell you what kind of performances the player has put up vs. opponents of each handedness (platoon), at home/on the road, month-by-month, in clutch situations, and more. We even have a split to see how the player did against opposing batters/pitchers who were younger or older than the player himself, since age is such a huge consideration in the minors.

They're on the same pages as the new gamelogs, so go to a player's minors page and click the link that is just above the player's batting or pitching stats (marked "Gamelog/Splits").

Greg Spira Award Announcement

Anyone who knows of Trent McCotter's work as a member of SABR will not be surprised that his research garnered the first Greg Spira Award. Greg was a dear friend of our site who passed early last year. Baseball-Reference.com is honored that we could co-sponsor an award in his honor.

Hockey Playoff Matchups

Posted by Mike on April 29, 2013

In anticipation of the NHL playoffs, we've updated the front page for the postseason. In addition, we've added playoff matchup pages for each series, where you can see how two teams stack up against each other at a glance. These pages have listings of how the two teams fared in regular-season meetings this year (plus a link to see how they've played each other all-time) and the current series status.

2013 Minor League Batting & Pitching Gamelogs w/ Row Summing

Posted by admin on April 29, 2013

Wil Myers 2013 Minor League Gamelogs / Jesse Biddle 2013 Minor League Gamelogs

I have been hoping to add this for awhile, but finally got around to it. We just added minor league gamelogs for the 2013 season. These have many of the same features that our major league gamelogs have. Clicking on two rows allows you to find the sum of any span of games. We also added errors to the output, so you can keep track of what the players are doing defensively as well.

To get there, go to a player page and click the link that is just above the player's batting or pitching stats.

I hope to add a whole lot more on this front, so stay tuned.

National Basketball League Stats

Posted by Justin Kubatko on April 29, 2013

I have added a section to the site with National Basketball League (NBL) stats. The NBL was a professional basketball league that was founded in 1937 and merged with the Basketball Association of America (BAA) to form the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1949. Several of the NBL's top players later played in the BAA/NBA, including George Mikan, Al Cervi, and Arnie Risen.

Keep in mind that the statistical record for the NBL was quite limited:

  • Games played (G), field goals (FG), free throws (FT), and points (PTS) are available for all players, all seasons.
  • Free throw attempts (FTA) are available for some players prior to the 1946-47 season and all players for the 1946-47, 1947-48, and 1949-49 seasons.

At some point I may try to add data from even more professional leagues, but given it's direct link to the NBA I thought the NBL was a good place to start. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this new addition to the site.
