Search for Walkoff Wins/Loss in Game Finders – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on May 23, 2014

I'm not sure why it took me 8 years to do this, but you can now search for walkoffs in the game finder play index tools.

Using the game finder you can find all of the walkoff wins and losses for your team. Using the controls at the top you can even see who's had the most walkoff wins or losses in a season. Please keep in mind that this is 100% complete back to 1974 and then will get progressively less complete back to 1940, though still pretty good. You can always check our coverage page to figure out what might be missing. When searching for walkoffs, we will also print out the type of play and the batter and pitcher involved, since we know that's what you want to see.

Linkable Shot Charts

Posted by David Corby on May 23, 2014

Just a note that we added a feature that lets you link to shot chart summaries with a Tiny URL.

First, we hope you knew that we publish shot charts for every game since the 2001 season. In case you didn't, when you're viewing a boxscore you should see links to several features, including our Shot Charts.

You can toggle the display by player and quarter. If you want to share a boxscore, click on 'Make Tiny URL' and we'll pop-up a short link that you can share on Twitter or wherever.

WNBA 2014 Stats

Posted by David Corby on May 23, 2014

Just a note that we've begun updating WNBA stats on a daily basis for the 2014 season.

We've also added a page for team schedules and results, which can you click to from each team's 2014 page.

We also have a couple new features in the works - game box scores, for example - that we should roll out soon...

Attendance Searches Added to Team Game and Streak Finders – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on May 21, 2014

You can now search for attendance related searches on the Team Game and Streak Finders. This allows you to find things like which teams have had the most 15,000 fans or less games in a season. Or which teams have the longest streaks of 40,000 fans or more. Enjoy.

Pitchers in the Field and At the Plate added to Batting Game Finder– Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by admin on May 21, 2014

Folks seemed to like the hitter's pitching option, so I've added a pitcher's in the field option. Check the box shown below and then click the set of positions you want above to see an output. For instance, get a list of PH home runs by pitchers.

Non-Pitchers Search Option added to Pitching Game Finder – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by admin on May 21, 2014

We've gotten a couple of requests for this, and it's true that non-pitcher pitching is WAY up this year despite 7 and 8 man bullpens and reduced run scoring. The option is in the third column. See below:

There is a caveat on this. We are including players who mostly played as position players in this list, so searching for 1915 will return a whole lot of Babe Ruth and similarly Rick Ankiel and Brooks Kieschnick will show up in 2004 searches. Be warned.

Shooting Hand Added to Player Season Finder

Posted by David Corby on May 16, 2014

Just a quick note that we've added Shooting Hand as a query option for our Player Season Finder.

We understand that any historical list like this contains some inaccuracies, so if you recognize any mistakes or omissions please let us know.

There are a few oddities like Tristan Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, who have switched shooting hands or who alternate depending on the type of shot attempt, that we can't fully account for. Though Jordan tends to dunk with his right hand, we consider him a left-hander.

Many thanks to former colleague Neil Paine and all of those whose research he referenced for compiling this list.

New League Shooting Table

Posted by David Corby on May 15, 2014

Just a note that we've added the same shooting table to our league season pages that we previously added to our player pages and our team pages. This is the easiest way to see team by team disparities in offensive approach. True to form, the Rockets take the fewest 2-point attempts in the 10-16 & 16+ foot range. In fact, league-wide those proportions have decreased every season except for one since 2000-01, the first season for which we have shot coordinates.

The easiest way to get to our league season pages is to click on (or mouseover) the 'seasons' link at the top of our site, then click on 'Summary', or a link for an individual season (e.g., '2013-14)

Maintenance Downtime (a few minutes), afternoon of May 14, 2014

Posted by admin on May 13, 2014

Due to a need to replace a faulty power supply the sites will be down for hopefully just a few minutes tomorrow afternoon as the power supply is being replace. The work is scheduled to occur sometime between 1 and 3 pm ET and should affect only our CFB, CBB and Olympics sites and this blog. Should a longer outage be necessary or any additional sites be affected, we will post any updates to our twitter accounts.
