For instance, in 1985, Rickey Henderson was driven in 56 times by Don Mattingly, 31 times by Dave Winfield and 24 times by himself.

If you look at a pre-2013 team season (back to about 1950) we now list GM, Farm Directors and Scouting Directors as applicable. This appears just under the team name in the top box, near where the manager can be found.

College Basketball: New School Statistics Tables

Posted by David Corby on March 3, 2014

This morning we added new school statistics tables for seasons going back to 1997-98. In fact, we added four tables - one for school stats, one for opponent stats, and corresponding tables with advanced metrics like Pace, 3-Pt Attempt Rate, and Turnover Percentage.

This data was available previously - on our school season pages - but this provides the easiest way to see all 351 D-I schools in one place and with easily sortable fields, so you can find the top 3-point shooting school (Creighton - .421), or the school that's forced the most opponent turnovers (VCU - 541) - all with a single click.

stats_link3

 

You can get to these new tables by clicking on the 'Stats' link when you're in the Seasons subsection of our site...

section_stats_link2

Otherwise, you can find them by using the dropdown menu under 'schools'  - where you'll find four rows with links to past seasons - or by mousing over the 'seasons' link and clicking on 'School Stats'.
